Acting, Theatre & Dance
This programme introduces students to dramatic literature, theatre history and practical theatre, including acting. The programme is practice-based, with much of the teaching done through workshops. Students will benefit from strong links already forged with the theatre community. NUI Galway has a rich tradition in the arts: several of our former students have founded theatre companies locally, nationally and internationally.
NUI Galway has formed a number of very exciting partnerships with prominent creative arts organisations. Performing Arts Studies students enjoy a unique opportunity to interact with professional actors, directors and theatre practitioners. Partner organisations include the renowned Druid Theatre Company, the international Galway Arts Festival and An Taibhdhearc, the National Irish Language theatre. Other local and national partnerships are currently being developed.
