Theatre at UBC

Degree Programs: Certificate in Theatre Design and Technology

Certificate Advisor: Robert Gardiner

The Certificate in Theatre Design and Technology program offers specialized and intensive professionally oriented study, concentrating on the practical aspects of theatre. The Technology Certificate allows beginning students to take introductory level courses before moving on to more specific areas of practical study. The Advanced Technology Certificate allows more experienced students to develop additional skills while encouraging a broader understanding of theatre history and dramaturgy. The Design Certificate is intended for experienced students who wish to extend their study at the senior undergraduate and graduate levels. Courses may be taken individually, or full time students may complete the certificate as a two-year intensive program.


Students applying to the certificate program from secondary school must meet the University minimum admission requirements. Students who meet the minimum academic requirements but do not meet the requisite competitive average for admission will still be considered for the certificate program. Students who do not meet the normal requirements, but have pursued theatre-related activities that have contributed to an intellectual maturity may also be accepted. In all cases, Faculty members in the Theatre program will evaluate candidates. An applicant's résumé or portfolio will be of principal importance.
