Program Information

School: University of Alberta
Faculty: Faculty of Education
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Drama and Dance Teacher Education
Description: The Drama major, taken as part of the BA/BEd combined degree, explores both theory and practice within a well-rounded liberal arts setting. You will be exposed to every aspect of the theatrical process, including acting, clowning, and improvisation; playwriting, directing, production, and design; and critical analysis and theory. You’ll also have the opportunity to pursue your own independent project in research and/or practice.

If you want to create theatre and teach others about theatre and its creative process, this combined degree is for you. The first three years are taken in the Faculty of Arts, and the last two years are taken in the Faculty of Education. You’ll graduate in five years with two degrees: a BA (Drama) degree and a BEd (Secondary) degree. This highly structured program allows for in-depth theatrical study paired with the training required to be a Junior or Senior High (Grades 7-12) teacher.
