Diploma in Performance and Communications Media

The diploma in performance and communications media draws on the expertise of the drama specialization in the Department of English, the Centre for Innovation in Teaching and Learning (CITL), and CBC Television. Students receive an introduction to multi-media in the area of dramatic arts and video techniques. Students will be introduced to the wide applications of stage and video craft through a program of project-oriented courses. Required courses give students specific skills in stage and video craft and enable students to specialize in their own particular practical area of interest.

The diploma prepares students to work in the cultural industries in Newfoundland or other parts of North America. Students with this unique training are better able to work across existing media.
