It's useful to know

The curriculum of the Bachelor's degree in Performing Arts aims to create performers with staging skills, or set creators with performance skills.

Our students begin the course with comprehensive performance training - text, gesture, movement, dance - and acquire skills in the field of directing, theatre art, space creation and stage technology. The educational strategy is based on ongoing performance and staging practice.  

From the start of the course, students carry out a series of staging tasks that culminate, in the fourth and final year, in the staging of a production that will be presented on a professional platform. In each of the four years of the course, the staging subjects are fundamental and form the basis of the rest of the subjects. The course also includes training in the audiovisual field for performing arts professionals: performing in front of a camera and knowledge of audiovisual production processes, delivered by experienced film directors.

The teaching is delivered by a carefully selected group of performing arts and audiovisual professionals who guide the students, using an eminently practical methodology, which leads students to discover their own potential and thereby opens up doors to an extensive range of career options.

Practical work experience

Students have to gain a series of credits, as part of their studies, which correspond to internships in companies or institutions relating to the bachelor’s degree they are studying. The teaching load is determined in accordance with the curriculum.

Bachelor's thesis

To obtain the degree, students have to complete a bachelor's thesis (TFG) which serves to assess the general skills they have acquired over the course of the degree programme and offers a summary of the skills and knowledge they have acquired. The teaching load of the thesis depends on the curriculum of the degree.

Mobility

Students can complete part of their degree programme abroad through the Erasmus programme, which enables them to carry on their studies whilst undertaking an international exchange with academic value in a European university.
