This is a three-year, full-time programme in practical drama training and education. TU Dublin Conservatory has over 20 years of experience in drama training and is one of the leading centres of education in the performing arts in Ireland. Our graduates have had national and international success as actors, directors, drama facilitators, and drama researchers. You’ll study fundamental acting techniques, voice and language in performance (including Shakespeare), and performance in a variety of cultural, historical and aesthetic contexts. You’ll develop your body through movement, singing, dance and combat. You’ll learn how to use drama in social and educational contexts through performance and running workshops, and how to analyse and write about a wide range of drama and performances.
Over the three years, there are two small-scale productions and one large-scale graduating production. While practical performance is at the core of the programme, you’ll be required to undertake substantial academic research and analysis as well. Modules include Acting, Voice and Speech, Ensemble Performance, Movement, Singing & Dance, Drama Facilitation, Monologue and Scene Study, Shakespeare and the Acted Word, Irish Drama and Modern Drama, Renaissance Drama to Romantic Drama, Theatre in Education, Acting to Camera, Radio Drama, and Contemporary Theatre and Drama.
Upon graduation, you may proceed to postgraduate studies leading to the award of MSc, MPhil or PhD at research institutes and universities worldwide.
