The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Theatre) focuses on a rigorous conservatoire style preparation for theatre practitioners working across all areas of live performance (including physical performance, writing, direction, and dramaturgy). It offers learning experiences of requisite size and scale to accommodate the demands of intensive project-based work in theatrical contexts, and exposes students to current infrastructural, cultural and methodological practices in the profession. It offers students opportunities to engage in National and International engagement projects, building on existing expertise and approaches to industry readiness for the autonomous, ensemble and company practitioner. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (Theatre) explicitly enables graduates to enter the profession with the capacity to instigate necessary change and leadership with effective clarity, preparedness and skill. Our graduates work at all levels of the profession, and are renowned for their capacity to work creatively and collaboratively, in both traditional and ground- breaking performance contexts. Students establish careers in professional theatre, community arts and education, film, television, radio, new media, and education.
