Brief History

The Department of Theatre Arts was one of the two main units of the erstwhile School of Music and Drama. It was therefore called the Department of Drama in 1972. Its name changed to the Department of Theare Studies after the School became known as the School of Performing Arts. As the pioneer Theatre Arts institution in the country, it continue to maintain our supervisory role of the industry by extending its programmes to the many theatre companies and emerging training centres at sister universities in the country. It continues to produce graduates and post-graduates as a contribution to the human resource needs of the country in several sectors.
