Drama production of Godspell


Drama studies shows us new perspectives, challenges us, and touches us – as our lives and the issues we face are reflected back in new and surprising ways.

Program overview

Faculty: Faculty of Arts
Degree options:

  • Bachelor of Arts, major in Drama
  • Any degree, minor in Drama
  • Undergraduate certificate in Theatre Arts

At Mount Allison, students involved in drama studies are challenged to work creatively, exploring new means of communication and expression – all within a cooperative collaborative environment.

Students begin their studies with an introduction to drama, followed by courses in:

  • acting
  • production
  • directing
  • design
  • dramatic theory
  • dramatic literature

In the final year of a major in drama studies, you will complete your degree with one or two independent projects in areas of special interest. This will allow you to work with a mentor from the faculty or staff to design and execute a major theatrical project in writing, design, directing, management, or acting.

The new multi-functional Motyer-Fancy Theatre typically hosts up to ten shows each year, performed and crewed by students, with direction and design by a mixture of theatre professionals and senior students.

*The Mount Allison drama program is designed to provide an education in drama rather than professional training for the theatre.

NEW! Undergraduate certificate in Theatre Arts

The certificate in Theatre Arts focuses on the practical aspects of theatre and drama with courses in acting, directing, production, design, as well as a production practicum.

Undergraduate certificates are open to Mount Allison students in any program of study. Certificates (12-18 credits) are taken during your Mount Allison degree, and must be combined with a major/degree program.
