The Department of Theatre is a dynamic centre for creativity, diversity, and intellectual growth, and one of the leading drama departments in Ireland.
Theatre forms part of the School of Film, Music, and Theatre and is committed to excellence in teaching and research. It has a vibrant learning community dedicated to theory and performance practice, as well as historical, interdisciplinary, and cross-cultural understanding of theatre and performing arts.
We offer courses on a full range of theatre theory and practices. Theatre has close links with Cork Opera House, Everyman Palace Theatre, Triskel Centre, and Firkin Crane, among others. It is located beside The Granary Theatre and has close relations with DRAMAT, one of the best drama societies in the country.
Students study either a single or joint subject degree while continuing to deliver public events, performances, and research collaborations with creative industries through our interdisciplinary research centre.
Since the beginning of 2019 we have changed the title of our BA programme from Drama and Theatre Studies to Theatre & Performative Practices.
