The Program

No new students are being admitted to the BA Theatre Minor.

The Bachelor of Arts, Minor in Theatre is intended for students who wish to pursue Theatre courses and the study of theatre as part of a Vancouver Island University BA degree. Upper-level Theatre courses complement several other disciplines including creative writing, playwriting, digital media, or media studies and these courses are useful electives for education students.

The courses offered are generally either academically-focused or skill-focused. Theatre history courses, for example, require reading, research, and writing skills, while courses in directing or design focus more on developing techniques and methodologies.

Strategies learned in these courses will be useful in many different disciplines and situations as the courses explore methods for the presentation of ideas and concepts to a live audience. These techniques apply to teaching, meetings, group work, collaborations, and presentations.
