Drama and Screen Studies
Flinders Drama Centre
The professional acting and directing programs at the Flinders Drama Centre were introduced in 1975. The combination of a strong grounding in performance theory, together with a high level of technical skills, has produced what they call ‘the intelligent alternative’ in professional training.
This practical approach, led by high calibre practitioners and a strong grounding in performance theory offer a dynamic course in touch with contemporary practises across all mediums of live performance and film.
Drama Centre graduates have made and continue to make a significant contribution to the entertainment industry both nationally and internationally.

Flinders University’s Department of Screen and Media offers a range of degrees and creative arts topics in screen studies, documentary, drama, scriptwriting, television, film, digital media, games, animation, 2D, 3D, online content and industry placements.
Their graduates are well-prepared for industry and many apply their knowledge, creative collaboration and technical skills to go on to successful and award winning careers within the Australian and international screen industries. Flinders staff have extensive industry experience and this provides ongoing opportunities for their students to network and develop connections with industry and screen professionals throughout their degrees. The Bachelor of Creative Arts is a unique course for students who want to fill key creative roles in the film, television or digital media industries, and who want to combine practical knowledge with high quality education and theory. These practical skills are complemented by such skills as independent thinking, critical evaluation and research abilities that widen employment prospects in the arts and communication industries.
