|AIM OF THE COURSE|
|On completion of the course, the student should be able to
- put the development of the theatre in a historical context
- analyse, perform and orally present dramatic works that are typical for a certain period
- reflect on and present how ethics and ethnology can be used in drama communication
- plan, carry out and be responsible for a drama communicative lecture

|The course includes both basic and advanced theories and practices in drama communication. The course includes lectures where the students try out and practise group building exercises, stage performance using techniques that are typical for a certain period, writing group contracts based on communicative exercises, Stanislavski's system and leading the group during a lecture. This course has clear communicative contents with a focus on performance.|
|The course has an insight-oriented working method in order to gain advanced knowledge of all parts of the course. The studies are focused on experience-oriented creative and reflective work in teacher-supervised and unsupervised working methods. The teaching sessions are characterised by practical work and reflection. Teacher-supervised theory sessions are featured, but by and large the student acquires theoretical knowledge individually and in groups. The students are required to prepare for and participate in the teaching sessions and group assignments, supervising of fellow students, literature seminars and examinations. Both supervised teaching and the work in groups are documented. Self-study, individually and in groups, is an important element in the course, and is included both in the course dates and meetings between them. Language of instruction: Swedish.|
|The student is examined continuously during the course, and the forms are scene presentation, and oral and written examination. A production with drama communicative contents is included in the course, and is examined through oral and written presentation at a seminar. The compulsory parts of the course comprise the examinations that are evident from the course guide and the literature seminars that require discussion journals.
Students failing an exam covering either the entire course or part of the course two times are entitled to have a new examiner appointed for the reexamination.
Students who have passed an examination may not retake it in order to improve their grades.
30 HE credits approved in drama/drama communication (or the equivalent).

|Course certificate is issued by the Faculty Board on request. The Department provides a special form which should be submitted to the Student Affairs Division.|

|Planning and implementation of a course must take its starting point in the wording of the syllabus. The course evaluation included in each course must therefore take up the question how well the course agrees with the syllabus.
