Course Outline

The denominated BA degree in Drama, Theatre and Performance allows students to combine specialist knowledge of the area with a choice of two other subjects from the general Arts degree in the first year of study, and with one subject from the BA in years two and four.

In the first year, Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies makes up one third of the course, and students also choose two other subjects from a choice of 20 subjects on the general Arts degree.

In the second year, students study Drama, Theatre and Performance, and one other subject carried over from first year. In the third year, the emphasis is on professional and practical experiences, as students undertake internships and other performance-based activities. In the final year, students continue their study of Drama, Theatre and Performance and their chosen Arts subject, taking both for their final degree.

Year 1
In the first year, students take four modules, all of which blend practical and classroom-based approaches. These modules provide students with a broad overview of the subject, focusing on acting, theatre histories in practice, and stagecraft.

Year 2
In the second year, students build their skills further, working on modern and contemporary theatre, while also exploring options in creative writing, design, and related topics. 

Year 3
The third year is dedicated entirely to Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies. Students who are studying a language as their other degree subject may choose to study abroad at a university where that language is spoken. Students may also choose to go on an exchange at a university in the United States, Canada or the UK. Students who choose to remain in Ireland take professional internships with Irish theatre companies, take classes in areas such as Musical Theatre, Irish Langauge theatre and/or Children’s Theatre, appear in a play that is staged in the department, and much more!

Year 4
In the final year, students select four modules. A major feature of the final year is an independent practice-based project in which students make their own work.. Staff also work closely with students to advise them on future opportunities in theatre, research and other areas.
