A. FACULTY OF ARTS REQUIREMENTS
Students must adhere to the applicable Faculty of Arts requirements in 3.4 Graduation.
B. MAJOR-FIELD REQUIREMENTS
The BFA in Drama requires the successful completion of the following program of study, which includes 69 to 75 units (11.5 to 12.5 full-course equivalents) in the Field of Drama:
Core Courses: 33 units (5.5 full-course equivalents) from Drama 209, 210, 223, 225, 242, 243, 345, 346, 347, 391, 393.
Drama Option: 36 units (6.0 full-course equivalents) from the Field of Drama at the 300 level or above.
C. OTHER REQUIREMENTS
SCPA Courses: 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalents) from School of Creative and Performing Arts 290, 399.
- 3 units (0.5 full-course equivalent) in English
- 6 units (1.0 full-course equivalent) 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.
