A. FACULTY OF ARTS REQUIREMENTS
Students must adhere to the applicable Faculty of Arts requirements in 3.4 Graduation.
B. MAJOR-FIELD REQUIREMENTS AND NORMAL SEQUENCE
The BFA in Drama requires the successful completion of the following program of study, which includes 60 to 84 units (10.0 to 14.0 full-course equivalents) in the Field of Drama:
- Core Courses: 24 units (4.0 full-course equivalents) from Drama 200, 223, 225, 240 and 340.
- Drama Option: 36 units (6.0 full-course equivalents), including:
- 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) from Drama 342, 344, 440, or both 355 and 357.
- An additional 30 units (5.0 full-course equivalents) from the field of Drama at the 300 level or above.
- Other Requirements: 15 units (2.5 full-course equivalents), including:
- 3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) in English
- 12 units (2.0 full-course equivalents) selected from courses in Art, Art History, Dance, Film, Fine Arts, Music, School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) and/or courses at the 300 level or above in Drama.
- Drama 225 is a 3-unit (0.5 full-course equivalent) course normally offered in the Fall Term. Drama 223 is also a 3-unit (0.5 full-course equivalent) course but it runs over the entire year and students must register in both “A” and “B” parts. Consequently, first year course loads will be 13.5 units (2.25 full-course equivalents) for one semester and 16.5 units (2.75 full-course equivalents) for the other semester. This will still maintain full-time status; however, students are advised to contact a program advisor in the Arts Students' Centre (ASC) for information concerning their registration.
- Drama offers the opportunity for selected students to complete a professional theatre internship with local professional theatre organizations while registered in Internship 591 and 593 (see 4.58.8).
- Students intending to pursue graduate studies in Drama are reminded that most Canadian universities require a reading knowledge of at least one modern language other than English.
- The Drama Division encourages students to enrich their degree programs with complementary courses, workshops and collaborations with other areas of study within the SCPA.
