Program Information

School: University of the Fraser Valley
Faculty: Faculty of Arts
Degree: Bachelor
Field of Study: Theatre/Theater
Description: The Theatre major integrates performance studies and creative practice to ensure graduates have a strong and diverse foundation in theatre. You acquire a deep understanding of the history and theory of performance and develop a high standard of competence in the practical, technical, and collaborative aspects of theatre. In your first two years, you develop a strong foundation in stagecraft and focus on four key areas: theatre studies; acting and performance; technical theatre and design; and creative practice, through practicum courses that provide opportunities to apply knowledge and skills through active participation in theatre productions.

In year three and four, you define and refine your creative vision and academic interests through independent and performance-research projects, while also sharpening your critical thinking skills in the evaluation and interpretation of theatrical genres, movements, performances, and texts. Upper level creative practice courses in acting, playmaking, design, and direction give you in-depth exposure to more advanced skills and techniques, as well as opportunities to apply, compare, and evaluate alternate creative approaches.
