Honours subject area

About this honours subject area

Admission to Theatre and Performance Studies honours requires a major in Theatre and Performance Studies with an average of 70 percent or above plus completion of PRFM3961 Rehearsal Studies.

Our Honours year brings theory and practice together. It involves specialised seminars, a research thesis on an individual topic and a detailed case study based on first-hand fieldwork. Honours students become a valued part of the department’s research culture.

In recent years, students have observed, documented and analysed performance across a broad range of genres, fields and geographical locations including: experimental dance in the Central Australian desert; contemporary Indigenous theatre in Melbourne; productions by Opera Australia; wayang topeng in Indonesia; sketch comedy on commercial Sydney radio; NIDA production exercises; mountain bike racing and a women's AFL team.
