From Shakespeare to Shortland Street, from a simple chalk square to the most elaborate multimedia setting, Theatre offers the seductive possibility of getting into someone else's skin, of seeing life through a new pair of eyes. A Bachelor of Arts (BA) major in Theatre gives you an opportunity to understand this impulse. It aims at an understanding of art forms that both affirm and question the most fundamental values of individuals and societies. Within a university context of teaching and research, practical creative work is integrated with literary, critical and historical study in the belief that experience of the craft is an essential ingredient in understanding the art. Acting, technical work, directing and public performance form an important part of the Programme's approach to the study of Theatre although we do not aim to provide vocational training.
