Department Overview:
Being a part of theatre is being closer to God: gaining the ability to create life on the stage, control human emotions, make them think, laugh, cry when you want. A thespian can raise relevant problems or simply help the audience relax after hectic day by simply watching their production. One can get all of this power, but it comes along with the huge responsibility of being a professional. Excellence and humility are our most highly regarded values. Our department aims to guide students through the creative process and help to look at the world from a very different perspective: that of a true artist.
Mission Statement:
VISION: Working toward a globalised society sharing life?s stage in harmony through professional attitude, excellence and service.
Introduction to Program:
This exceptional combination of Theatre, English and Psychology was carefully developed for the benefit of students foremost in mind. All the three disciplines complement each other and give unique possibilities for career paths. No matter which of these disciplines is your main interest, the other two intertwine to greatly help the major one. If it's psychology, art is one of the most powerful cures that could be implemented for drama therapy. Focusing on English, the ability is not to simply read a piece of literature but to understand the psychology of characters and feel their emotions. This is a great and rare skill that can be obtained throughout this course. To have theatre as your priority and to work on roles as an actor; psychology is the key to understand the character's way of thinking, along with English for better play analysis.
