Programme Structure

Curriculum: 

  • Waikato's Theatre Studies programme takes a theory-through-practice approach to teaching and learning the art of theatre. 
  • We take the live encounter of a theatre performance as our starting point, encouraging you to explore and extend your own dramatic practice.
  • Many papers in the programme provide opportunities for the practical study of performance, while others examine the theories that have shaped and informed theatre over the ages. 
  • Two papers have public performances at their core, with the study process mirroring the creative process of page-to-stage, or idea-to-stage, that results in the performance. 
  • You'll learn about, and potentially add to, New Zealand's rich array of theatrical forms, established and traditional, and new and experimental.
