Certificate Programs

wîcêhtowin Theatre Program

Creating new stories for a new generation

The Department of Drama at the University of Saskatchewan is proud to announce an innovative new program of study — first of its kind in Canada — wîcêhtowin Theatre Program. 

The wîcêhtowin Theatre Program (WTP) is a 21-credit Arts and Sciences Certificate program for Indigenous students. WTP has been revised so students can take the certificate on its own in combination with any other degree program.

Foundations of Drama

The certificate program in Foundations of Drama is composed of courses that rely on experiential-based learning, intended to develop the student’s ability in a combination of acting and technical theatre. Students are able to choose courses to create a main focus on acting, a main focus on technical theatre, or to balance the two sides of these theatre disciplines.

Students who receive this 15-credit certificate will have the confidence to put the skills learned into practice in real-life settings, be it with a theatre collective, or as a skillset to be utilized by elementary or secondary school teachers.

Note: Students may receive only one of the Foundations of Drama certificate or the wîcêtowin Theatre certificate.

Graduate Program

Master's Program

The MA in Drama is available on a special case basis. It is an individually tailored program. Interested students should consult with the Head of the Department.
