The University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) Theatre & Performance Studies program combines the critical study of theatre with hands-on experiential training. Students learn about traditional theatre practices and look at other cultural practices through the lens of ‘performance.' The program includes courses in historical and contemporary Western and non-Western theatre traditions as well as practical courses focused on acting technique, on technical theatre, and on directing for the stage.
Taking advantage of its location in Toronto, the program frequently features theatre outings and professional artist talks, workshops and residencies. Some graduates of the TAPS program pursue careers as actors, technicians or arts administrators and others go on to use the skills they develop in careers outside the arts such as teaching, management or government.
