Technical Theatre & Production BA Hons (Year 3 entry)

BA(Hons) Technical Theatre and Production is the only undergraduate honour’s programme currently available in Scotland offering a comprehensive range of subjects in Technical Theatre. BA(Hons) Technical Theatre and Production aims to intersect the notion of ‘art’, ’technology' and ‘performance’ and to help students identify and refine their specialist strands within the subject. The students will be introduced to academic research skills for practice-led and practice-based research, and will be critically engaged with interdisciplinary concepts around stagecraft, scenography and education. The programme invites the students to a range of masterclasses led by leading industry professionals and scholars, as well as 'Theatre Lab', bi-weekly collaborative sessions where students stage a new performance at the Gaiety Theatre. In addition, the students can participate in a number of collaborative projects with other HE institutions, arts and cultural organisations across Scotland. This programme is ideal for designers, artists and educators in a performance and performative context. Successful completion of this course aims to create career opportunities in theatre, film, television, visual art and education; as well as preparing students to pursue avenues of postgraduate study.
