Ideal for individuals with a strong interest in theatrical arts or performance, theatre courses are not limited to theatre majors in a Bachelors or Masters program. Many theatre courses are available to returning students with a personal or professional interest, for whom additional academic qualifications in theatre could benefit their career. In addition to the direct professional applications of lessons learned in theatre courses, in acting, set design, lighting, scriptwriting and production design, there are also concrete applications in almost any business sector for lessons in communication, body language, creative thinking and design.

Theatre courses last for anywhere from a few days to a semester or more, making them suitable to a very wide range of prospective students. Offered on a full time or part time basis, theatre courses are available at universities in several different countries around the world.

When it comes to cinema and television, the role that most often comes to mind is that of an actor. Acting in the world of audio-visual production, however, is different from acting in the theatre. We must not only deal with an audience but with a whole series of departments that literally go around the actor. A good actor must know how to move, fight, sing, dance, and show that he knows how to put himself in the shoes of any character. The more skills one has, the greater the chances of being chosen for a certain role. Needless to say, knowing how to sell, or present is a fundamental skill for overcoming selection when a cast is formed. -
