  • Students admitted to this program may need to take one or more additional English courses in order to meet the prerequisite requirements of the English courses required in this program.
  • It is strongly recommended that students be financially able to support themselves without having to work during the term. Because theatre arts students are requested to put in long and often irregular hours, including evenings and weekends, having an outside job is extremely difficult.

Senior students sometimes are given the opportunity to gain additional experience by working with professional theatres in Vancouver or working on a film/TV project.

    • who have two years of post-secondary education and/or work experience, not necessarily related to theatre arts
