4.58.6 Concurrent BFA (Drama Education)/BEd

This five-year program leads to a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Drama Education from the Faculty of Arts and a Bachelor of Education from the Werklund School of Education. A minimum of 150 units (25.0 full-course equivalents) must be successfully completed.

Present certification requirements of the Province of Alberta can be satisfied. When planning courses, students should take into consideration Alberta Teacher Certification Requirements. For details, refer to the Werklund School of Education website.

The BFA (Drama Education) program is a specialized three-year program, which exists only in combination with the two-year BEd. It is designed for students intending either to teach drama in schools or to work as drama specialists with young people or community groups following certification. It provides extensive course work in performance creation and other aspects of the theatre, which relate directly to the particular needs of theatre with and for youth and communities.


Students must meet the admissions requirements for the Faculty of Arts as well as the Werklund School of Education as specified in the Undergraduate Admissions section of this Calendar.


Students must adhere to the applicable Faculty of Arts requirements in 3.4 Graduation.


Students must successfully complete the following program of study, which includes from 60 units (10.0 full-course equivalents) to 78 units (13.0 full-course equivalents) in the Field of Drama:

Refer to 4.3 Five-Year BEd (Concurrent) Program in the Werklund School of Education section of the Calendar.


  • Students in this program must complete Education 201 before they can enter their first year in the Werklund School of Education.
  • 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.
