The Drama Program (Specialist, Major, Minor) offers students the opportunity to combine high standards of practical, professional theatre training with a rich and rigorous academic program. The Program offers courses in dramatic literature, dramaturgy, stage theory, theatre history, production, design, direction, and performance. Students are required to take structured combinations of courses interrelated so as to lead to a broad knowledge of the field as a whole. The Combined Specialist programs in English and Drama also provides a specialist alternative to Drama alone, while a Drama Major or Minor may be valuably combined with programs in a wide variety of other fields, as offered both by language and literature departments (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, etc.) and other departments and programs such as Anthropology, Canadian Studies, Cinema Studies, Classics, Commerce, Fine Art, History, Music, Psychology, Religion, Sociology, and Women’s Studies.
The Drama Program is housed in the Helen Gardiner Phelan Playhouse at University College. Besides providing instruction in theatre studies, the Drama Program has mounted international theatrical events and conferences, and its students have toured Europe and Asia. The Program has also forged links with leading Canadian theatres and has regular contact with world-renowned international theatre artists. More details on the Drama Program, including application forms, can be found on the web site at: http://www.library.utoronto.ca/uc/ucdp. The Program Director and Academic Undergraduate Secretary are also available for consultation.

DRM courses are staffed by a combination of theatre professionals, members of other university departments, and specific DRM staff members. Some courses are restricted to students in a Drama Specialist, Major, or Combined Specialist program; some are open to all students of the University.
