Drama and production major (Option 1 - Open Entry)
The drama and production major will provide you the learning and experience to initiate and produce creative performances, projects and events.

Graduates will work across a variety of media and collaborate with performance makers, educational institutions and organisations, using the arts to activate and empower communities.
The program is also suitable for emerging and established performing artists who want to continue exploring their independent practices, engaging in performance theory, professional practice and entrepreneurial skills. A range of elective units is on offer to expand the student's skills base and knowledge including study in Music, Visual Arts, Gaming, Fashion and Digital Design.
Advanced acting major (Option 2 - Audition Required)
The advanced acting major focuses on the craft and art of acting and performance. The course offers: lively, detailed and focused training in acting, voice and body skills; regular performance opportunities (https://tafeqld.eventsair.com/acting/) to play to live audiences; and intense development of the acting student's creative voice as an independent performance maker. Plays, readings, online resources and academic materials are designed to inspire, challenge and motivate the training actor.
Students are expected to develop as actors and performers who think for themselves, respect their own ideas and ideals, and use theatre and film as a means to share their vision. Students are encouraged to understand and explore their place as performers in a contemporary world.
