The acceptance of dissertation proposals is dependent on the availability of a suitable supervisor. Areas of specialised research in the department include:

  •  Theatre Making
  •  Directing for the Theatre
  •  Performance Studies
  •  South African & African Theatre
  •  Educational and Applied Drama
  •  Theatre Voice Practise

The department welcomes all enquiries as the possibility of joint supervision with other departments allows for a much broader range of theoretical enquiries than the areas of specialisation suggested above.
