|Theatre makes you think and feel. It doesn’t fit into a traditional classroom, so we won’t put you there. Through seminars, workshops, productions and field trips, you’ll be immersed in your learning experience. Whether you want to get on stage or help behind the curtain, there are lots of shows to get in on. Through our Fall Theatre Production Course, Stratford Festival and Theatre Western, you'll take on everything from acting to props, costumes and marketing. This program is great preparation for a post-degree program in acting, directing and stage management.
You can complete this program as a 4-year Honours Bachelor degree with a Double Major or a 3-year Bachelor degree. Registration in the honours degree usually begins in the second year, but admission may be gained in the third or fourth year provided you meet requirements.
Interested in challenging yourself? Wondering how you might add an interdisciplinary approach to your degree? You might be interested in SASAH! The School of Advanced Studies in the Arts and Humanities is the flagship Program of Western’s Faculty of Arts and Humanities. Unique in Canada, the SASAH Program offers an interdisciplinary, cross-cultural, and community-engaged educational experience. When you graduate, you receive an undergraduate Major from the School in conjunction with a Major from an existing program, such as Theatre Studies. Learn more here.
