Our Diploma in Performing Arts interdisciplinary curriculum covers two major disciplines: theatre and film. Over two years, students rigorously hone the fundamentals of both crafts: onstage, backstage, in front of the camera, and behind the scenes. Students are supported by a diverse, experienced and dynamic faculty who reflect today's industry practices. Apart from lectures, students also learn through demonstrations, practical sessions, tutorials, viewings, discussions, performances and field trips. Students are encouraged to find a voice and be critical of their work. They also have ample opportunities to create for the here and now.
Upon completion, students may choose to further their education in Sunway, or with our partner universities in Australia and the UK.
This unique programme provides a strong head-start for employment. Students from the Diploma in Performing Arts have had successful careers not only in theatre and film, but also its related industries in television, radio, journalism, digital media, advertising, broadcasting, and social media.
