Department of Theatre Studies

The Department of Theatre Studies of the University of Peloponnese was founded in 2003 and will have its first graduates in the summer of 2007. The 4-year programme of study includes both theoretical and practical courses in theatre. During the last two years the students are divided into four specialization directions: Acting and directing, Set & Costume design, Dance, Drama studies. Faculty, full-time and adjuncts are predominantly young and very active in research as well as in the professional theatre. The department is based at Nafplion, a beautiful town of Venetian architecture on the North-eastern part of the Peloponnese, near the ancient theatre of Epidaurus.
