Drama and Creative Arts / Théâtre et arts visuels

Drama and Creative Arts / Théâtre et arts visuels


Drama Studies can lead to a career in various aspects of theatre and is also excellent preparation for a career in teaching, public speaking and many other fields.

Get to know drama as a study of literature and performance with courses that integrate the study of language, literature, critical theory, performance media and genres (such as film or television). You’ll learn from award-winning experts in their fields, explore varied works of dramatic literature and performance and get hands-on experience with productions in English, French and Spanish with our student-led production company. Glendon's black box theatre boasts excellent lighting, sound and multimedia technologies.

Étudiez l’art dramatique par le biais de la littérature et de la représentation théâtrale, grâce à des cours intégrés à l’étude de la langue, à la littérature, à la théorie critique, aux médias de la représentation et aux genres (comme le cinéma, la télévision, etc.). Vous étudierez, auprès d’experts du domaine, diverses œuvres de la littérature dramatique ainsi que l’art de la représentation théâtrale, et vous acquerrez une expérience pratique en participant aux productions étudiantes en anglais, en français et en espagnol présentées dans notre salle « boîte noire » dotée d’un système d’éclairage, de sonorisation et de technologies multimédias de pointe.
