BACHELOR OF ARTS IN CREATIVE ARTS (THEATRE ARTS)
The theatre arts programme focuses on the study of the creative and imaginative use of theatre both within and outside Africa. Theatre is viewed not in isolation but in relation to other art forms (music, fine art, poetry etc), as well as in historical, philosophical, sociological, anthropological and political perspectives. The theatre arts programme is therefore integrative and the student is expected to have a broader perspective of theatre within the community than a less interdisciplinary theatre arts course would provide. In addition the theatre arts programme emphasizes the practical approach to theatre studies, since the student will not only be expected to be able to theorize but also to apply theory to performance, interpretation performances and be involved in actual production in the theatre.
Structure of the Programme
The student will be expected to take a specified number of units distributed as in Table 1, degree programme courses, and elective courses in order to fulfil the requirements of the degree programme.
