Faculty Page | Courses

The Faculty of Performing Arts started facilitating education and training through the Department of Theatre, which includes Department of Acting and Department of Dramatic Writing, within the academic year 2005-2006.

Department of Acting facilitates education and training as part of a Vocational School at university level. It involves a period of 4 years. Besides core modules of the department, students are also provided modules through an academic staff who are regarded as doyens and masters of theatre. They facilitate acting techniques; aesthetics, theoretic and practical issues regarding stage, besides providing practice on; rhythm, vocal and aural training, and other cultural and theoretical courses.

As mentioned above, the academic staff of the Department of Acting consists of doyens, masters and specialists in their fields and this is a feature that makes us very proud. We feel the need to reemphasize this, since master and apprenticeship relation in acting training is very significant. One must look through the academic staff of a department thoroughly when making a choice of where to study. If you desire not to fall behind among professionals of art or feel that you are incompetent, then you must assure that the academic staff of the department of your study has a lot to offer. A wise selection of an educational institution is the one which offers highly equipped and well-known figures as the academic staff of a department.
