Administrative Assistant Georgann Cope Watson 905-688-5550, extension 5255 Schmon Tower 104A brocku.ca/dramatic_arts The Department of Dramatic Arts (DART), part of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts (MIWSFPA), addresses the study, application and interrogation of the discipline as cultural and educational practice. The Department of Dramatic Arts offers a BA Honours in Dramatic Arts. For honours students, Concentrations are available in Drama in Education and Applied Theatre, Performance, Production and Design and Theatre Praxis. The Department also offers a four-year (20 credit) BA with Major Dramatic Arts degree and a three-year BA Pass degree. A Certificate program in Drama in Education and Applied Theatre as well as a Minor in Dramatic Arts are also offered for non-DART majors. Dramatic Arts offers two concurrent BA (Honours)/BEd programs over five years. See calendar entry under Education - BA (Honours)/BEd (Intermediate/Senior) and Education BA Integrated Studies (Honours) (Junior/Intermediate). All Dramatic Arts degree offerings are united under one goal: to integrate theory and practice so as to provide students with a broad educational base combining research, practice and creative development. Pedagogical practices and performance, design, and technical skills are theorized and integrated in various ways with the study of critical thinking, theatre history, dramaturgy and dramatic literature. Projects include two major productions, as well as various productions and events, such as the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts showcase programming. The Dramatic Arts Co-op program combines academic and work terms over a four-year period. Students spend one year in an academic setting studying the fundamentals of dramatic arts prior to taking the first work placement. In addition to the current fees for courses in academic study terms, Co-op students are assessed an annual administrative fee (see the Schedule of Fees). Eligibility to continue is based on the student's major average and non-major average. A student with a minimum 70 percent major average and a minimum 60 percent non-major average will be permitted to continue. A student with a major average lower than 70 percent will not be permitted to continue in the Dramatic Arts Co-op program. All students in the Co-operative Education program are required to read, sign and adhere to the terms of the Student Regulations Waiver and Co-op Student Handbook (brocku.ca/co-op/current-students/co-op-student-handbooks) as articulated by the Co-op Programs Office. In addition, eligibility to continue in the co-op option is based on the student's major average and non-major average, and the ability to demonstrate the motivation and potential to pursue a professional career. Each four-month co-operative education work term must be registered. Once students are registered in a co-op work term, they are expected to fulfill their commitment. If the placement accepted is for more than one four-month work term, students are committed to complete all terms. Students may not withdraw from or terminate a work term without permission from the Director, Co-op Program Office. The Dramatic Arts Co-op program designation will be awarded to those students who have honours standing and who have successfully completed a minimum of twelve months of Co-op work experience. Facilities Beginning June 2015, the Department of Dramatic Arts will be located in the new Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts facility located in downtown St. Catharines. Facilities include Smart classrooms such as a Lecture/Praxis hall (flexible, flat-floored), seminar rooms, four rehearsal and performance studios (two with lighting grids, one with production booth, one with adjacent wet lab), scenography studio, coach/scene work room, the new Dramatic Arts Theatre: a flexible 285-seat venue with adjacent Green and dressing rooms, Scene Shop, Costume Shop, Production Lighting and Sound Shops. Student learning will be supported by a new learning commons, computer commons, ITS computer lab and equipment lending counter. DART courses will also be taught in the venues of the St. Catharines Performing Arts Centre.
