DT529 Bachelor of Arts in Drama (Performance)
- Level 8 Honours Degree
- 3 years full-time
For over 60 years, DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama has been committed to practical drama training and education. The Honours BA in Drama (Performance) is a three-year full-time course which includes actor training, movement, Shakespeare in performance, Irish drama, performance for radio and camera, as well as theatre in education and performance analysis. In their final year, students perform in a full-scale production and in an acting showcase for an industry audience. Graduates have worked in the Abbey Theatre, RTÉ, the Royal Shakespeare Company, London’s West End and TEAM Theatre Company, among many other institutions.
This programme is unique in Ireland in that it is the only acting-based degree accessible through the Central Applications Office. While actor training is at the core of the programme, rigorous academic demands, including scholarly research and written analyses, underpin the performance work. Furthermore, in all three years, students study drama in educational and facilitation contexts.
The programme aims to ensure a dynamic educational environment and provides students with strong prospects both for further study at postgraduate level and for employment in the area of drama.
Who should apply for this programme?
Any person who intends to commit themselves to acting and the intensive study of various aspects of drama.
What is DIT looking for at audition?
In a word, potential. This means openness to the demands of performance, inquisitiveness about drama and performance, and an ability to work with others. See Entry Requirements for Audition
