Drama Education Specialisation

Code SPAARH

Designed for students wishing to become secondary Drama teachers.

Through lectures and practical workshop sessions that focus upon drama styles and technique, students learn how to teach this content effectively, as well as learn about the issues and challenges facing drama in secondary schools. The units cover school curricula, teaching strategies and the development and assessment of teaching programmes.

Special entry requirements

All applicants are required to complete a major in drama (three years of degree level study comprising at least 6 units with no more than two at first-year level and no fewer than two units at third-year level) including all of the following: performance, production, theory, and preferably Australian drama. Drama studies must be developed as a discrete discipline. Vocationally oriented courses are not recognised as equivalent. Alternatively applicants can complete at least two years (4 units) of degree level study in drama with at least two units at level 2 or above in the previously mentioned areas, if they intend to undertake this specialisation as their minor area of study.
