Study your minor in Drama at King's
Take your performance skills to the stage in live theatre and motion pictures! Students in the Drama program learn to perform and express themselves—and other personas—both on stage and behind-the-scenes. As a drama minor, students have the opportunity to contribute to short and full-length productions, and if they're up for the challenge, to take centre stage!
Drama is rich with possibility for personal and professional development. This minor is also a good fit for students who are interested in King's Bachelor of Education degree and instructing high-school drama programs themselves.
