Admissions Process for studies commencing in 2016-17
The Department of Dramatic Arts Invitational

Following the successful application to the undergraduate program at the Department of Dramatic Arts (DART) of Brock University the applicants are invited to the annual DART Invitational.

The Invitational is an admissions process for students interested in entering the Department of Dramatic Arts (DART) at Brock University. Students who receive a conditional offer of admission to the Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Dramatic Arts program will be invited to the St. Catharines campus to participate in one of the two DART Invitationals.  In 2016 the Invitationals are scheduled for (Saturday) March 05th and May 07th. Offers of admission will be conditional upon successful completion of the DART Invitational.

The DART Invitational is an exciting, full day event of workshops that will introduce you to all facets of theatre study our program offers – from drama in education and applied theatre, to production and design, to performance and theatre praxis. Whereas most drama programs ask you to prepare a classical monologue and give you a two-minute opportunity to “impress the judges,” we will be taking you through a series of workshops, which will allow you to walk away with some introductory skills, as well as an original piece of theatre you’ve created with peers.

Throughout the day’s events, you will have an opportunity to meet some of the program’s faculty and staff, current students, as well as recent graduates of the program. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
