Introduction / Introduction



The Department Of Theatre Arts, founded in 1982, offers a four-year undergraduate B.F.A. program, an M.A./M.F.A. in Dramatic Theory, and a Ph.D. in Dramatic Theory.


Our courses focus on creativity, professionalism, and collaboration in order to fulfill our goal of training excellent theatrical artists and works. Our courses embrace the traditions of both eastern and western theatre, both traditional and modern-balancing critical thinking with practical skills, and theory with technique. We are a big team: graduates, undergraduates, and students of all disciplines collaborate equally in rehearsals, performances, playreading, and other tasks.


The core of our training program is our emphasis on production and academic presentation. Each semester we produce one mainstage faculty-led production, and at least four studio productions by students. The mainstage productions are supported by a creative team drawn from academic faculty and professional faculty and staff; the student productions are supported by instructors who offer mentoring and individual guidance. Production also serves as the cornerstone for our process of evaluation.





As the sole institute that researches theatrical design and other related theories in Taiwan, the primary goal of our department is to train, academically and practically, those potential students who are interested in visual arts, cultivating them to be outstanding theatrical designers. We are confident that all the prominent theatrical designers should have humanist spirit, visual sensibility, and creativity. Therefore, in spite of humanist cultivation and basic academic training, we innovate teaching modes, expecting to inspire students to connect theories with practical theatrical design.

Taking the responsibility of educating young talents, all the professors are anxious to teach, to provide all the knowledge they have in mind. We have been doing everything we can to improve our teaching modes and facilities. For our future development, we will innovate facilities, offering students more resources and a better learning environment. Also, to enhance our professional field and to assist students to understand the practical operation of theater, we will scrape up budget to build our own departmental building and practice factory. Besides, in order to connect with the world and to catch up with advanced countries, we will participate in the international theatrical affairs, exchanging experiences with those advanced countries.
