INSTITUTIONAL PROFILE

The Academy of Dramatic Art is the oldest Croatian higher education institution offering study programs in performing and audiovisual arts. Within its theater, film and dance departments it covers almost all aspects of dramatic art on a practical artistic, theoretical and scientific level. At the Academy of Dramatic Art, there are eight departments with 10 undergraduate and 15 graduate study programs. All undergraduate studies last 6 semesters, resulting in 180 ECTS credits after completion, and all graduate studies last 4 semesters, which equates to 120 ECTS credits.

PROGRAMME EMPHASIS

The Academy of Dramatic Art consists of theatrical departments – Acting, Dramaturgy, Theater Directing and Radiophony (Broadcasting), Dance, Production (theater), and film departments – Film and TV Directing, Cinematography, Editing and Production (film). With such structure, which brings together almost all performing and audiovisual arts professions under one roof, the Academy provides its students with a broad practical and theoretical insight into theater and film practices. This also encourages creative networking of students of different arts during their studies and their future professional cooperation after graduation.

All undergraduate studies provide bachelors with the basic knowledge and skills needed to work within their profession. Competences acquired at the end of the undergraduate level in a particular department are an excellent basis for continuing studies in the graduate program of the same department, but also in the graduate programs of other departments of the Academy of Dramatic Art and related higher education institutions in Croatia and abroad. Graduate studies at the Academy of Dramatic Art encourage students to independent authorial, project, artistic-research work and active cooperation with the professional scene, which results in a high degree of their employability in the creative industries.

Collaboration of students from different departments, either mentored or under artistic guidance of their teachers, is one of the most important advantages of studying at the Academy of Dramatic Art. Through this type of cooperation, students gain professional experience even before completing their studies and are, upon graduation, in great demand on the Croatian labor market and highly competitive on European ones. Here are the most common career prospects that are presently on the market: Actor or Performer, Stage Director, Theatre Director, Artistic Director, Dramatist, Film Screenwriter, Film Critic, Theatre Critic, Film Director, TV Director, Cinematographer, Photo-Reporter (Photographer), Lighting Designer, Camera Operator, Colourist / Lighting Reader, Cinematographer – Crane Operator, Trick Cinematographer (Animation), Film Producer, Theatre Producer, Theatre Administrator, Editor (Cutter), Sound Editor, Sound designer, Picture Mixer and Directing Secretary (Script).
