Not offered Blacktown 2023
The major sequence in Drama provides students with a comprehensive overview of theatrical literature and history and a grounding in production work. Through performances, workshops and practical classes, ACU’s Drama sequence develops skills in many areas including theatre production, stage management, direction, and acting, as well as knowledge of theatre history and repertoire. Students who complete a major in drama possess transferrable skills in communication and public speaking and can seek employment in the performing arts industry or use the skills developed in other professional contexts. When combined with an appropriate tertiary teaching qualification, the drama major is a pathway to becoming a secondary-school drama teacher. You do not need any previous theatre experience and there are no prerequisites for studying introductory Drama at ACU.
