EDT Student Procedures

Student Study Stream Selection.

For the final two years of your residency within the EDT Department of the School of Theatre & Entertainment Arts, each student is required to select a study stream.

The EDT BFA 1 and 2 years provide fundamental knowledge in Lighting, Sound and Stage Technology. There are also a series of support study courses providing the necessary background knowledge. Studying these courses is the pre-requisite for the courses of the BFA 3 programme.

In the BFA 3 year the student can select an area of Major study. The Major study areas are:

  • Lighting Design
  • Lighting Technology
  • Sound Design
  • Sound System Design
  • Music Recording
  • Technical Direction

Each study stream has a core study area with support studies and electives. All EDT BFA 2 courses are open as electives for EDT students. By selecting your electives you can study your major stream and a set of electives to give yourself a unique set of skills.

When chosing a study stream option, the curriculum will include courses from other study streams. i.e., if you select lighting design, you will also study lighting technology, but not to such a depth as if you choose lighing technology as the study stream. Because there are three different study streams in sound, there are more combinations that you can select from.
