Bachelor programs
You learn how to deal with theatrical forms by means of improvisation, text analysis, and intensive training. You learn to act for an audience and for the camera.
You place yourself on stage. You explore the boundaries between theatre and other art forms. Cross-over is the breeding ground for performers.
You learn how to express your message as theatre. You direct actors so as to get that message across as clearly as possible.
You are trained as an independent designer for theatrical productions and are brought into contact with an international theatre network.
During this part-time programme (PTO), you develop your skills as a performer as the basis for your work as a drama teacher and director.
If you want to inspire others to go into theatre, you can gain the necessary teaching qualification by taking this post-graduate course (PAO).
