Πτυχίο Τμήματος Θεάτρου (Ptychio Tmimatos Theatrou)
Upper secondary degree-national level examination.
To graduate from the School of Drama, students have to attend and successfully complete 63 courses and a dissertation summing up to 300 ECTS. Studies in the School of Drama comprise 10 semesters (2 semesters per year) and the student total work load for each academic year is 60 ECTS (that is 30 ECTS for each semester). In the last semester, students are required to submit a dissertation which consists of (a) a written thesis or a theatre production or a stage design project, depending on the direction chosen by the student and (b) a 45 minute lecture on a subject of the studentchoice (20+10=30 ECTS).
During the first years of study, students have to pass a number of Core course requirements, related to the historical and theoretical study of theatre, dramaturgy and performance theory, and drama in education (27 courses or 121,5 ECTS). In addition, there is a foreign language requirement (4 courses or 12 ECTS). In the next phase, students work towards specializing in one of four majors: (a) dramaturgy and performance theory, (b) stage design, (c) acting, (d) general theatre studies, as well as a minor: directing. . All majors require the successful completion of 27 Elective courses (136,5 ECTS) and of 5 Free Elective courses (15 ECTS).(The directing program requires the successful completion of 4 elective courses).
The programme of studies at the School of Drama seeks to bridge the gap between theory, scholarship and practice, placing equal emphasis on theatre theory and history and on stage training in order to provide students with background education as well as professional skills.
