BA (Hons) (Drama and Theatre Studies - International) Pathway

NFQ Level 8, Major Award

The BA (Hons) (Drama and Theatre Studies - International) is a four-year Joint Subject programme which enables students of Drama and Theatre Studies to study abroad for a year in an approved University outside Ireland. It may be particularly valuable for Drama and Theatre Studies students who are studying a European language as it affords them an opportunity to study where that language is spoken. Students also have the opportunity to become familiar with the methods and perspectives of another approved University system outside Ireland.

In First Arts (Drama and Theatre Studies) students take Drama and Theatre Studies (30 credits) together with two other subjects (15 credits) each from those listed here. It is recommended that at least one of these subjects be a language/literature subject. Students who are considering spending Third Year at a European University must choose one of French, German, Italian or Spanish in First Year. To avoid timetable clashes no more than one subject may be chosen from any separate group.

Students who wish to take the Second Arts (Drama and Theatre Studies - International) pathway register for the pathway at the beginning of Second Year. No student may register for Second Arts Drama and Theatre Studies - International until he/she has passed the relevant First University Examination. The selection of any module is conditional on the Professor or Lecturer concerned and the College being satisfied that he/she is capable of profiting by attendance thereat. A student may not select modules which involve a timetable clash. In Second Arts Drama and Theatre Studies - International, students will continue with Drama and Theatre Studies and one other subject from First Year. Each subject must comprise modules to the value of 30 credits.
