Theatre practicum courses

The required practicum courses for the Associate of Arts — Theatre option are one of THEA 199 (Technical Theatre Practicum) or THEA 299 (Theatre Production Practicum). The Theatre department also offers two credit/non-credit practica designed for students who wish to develop additional experience in theatre practice: THEA 290 (Theatre Practice – Small Ensemble) and THEA 295 (Theatre Practice – Large Ensemble).

Theatre practica are grouped in accordance with each production in the department’s annual season of theatre. Since each production represents a unique project, students may repeat THEA 199 or 299 once for further elective credit towards a Theatre Arts diploma, Associate of Arts — Theatre option, Bachelor of Arts degree, or Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Students may also acquire as many THEA 290 or THEA 295 credits as they wish, however only a maximum of six credits drawn from one each of THEA 199, 299, 290, or 295 can be used for elective credits towards any UFV degree program, including the diploma, AA, BA, or BFA. In all cases, additional credit will only be granted when the work undertaken in each practicum represents a different production role.
