Social

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Summary... header image

The BA in Drama (Performance) is a three-year, full-time programme in practical drama training and education. DIT Conservatory has over 20 years experience in drama training and is one of the leading drama providers in Ireland. DIT Drama graduates have had national and international success as actors, directors, drama facilitators, and drama researchers.

You will study fundamental acting techniques, voice and language in performance (including Shakespeare), and performance in a variety of cultural, historical and aesthetic contexts.

You will also develop your body through movement, singing dance and combat. You will learn how to use drama in social and educational contexts through performance and running workshops and you will learn how to analyse and write about a wide range of drama and performance.

Over the three years, there are two small-scale productions and a large-scale graduating production. While practical performance is at the core of the programme, you will be required to undertake substantial academic research and analysis as well.
