Trinity College Dublin is the leading university on the island of Ireland – ranked 25th in Europe and 78th in the World (Times Higher Educational Supplement global rankings 2006).
Drama and theatre studies combine elements of literary, cultural, historical and sociological studies with a practical understanding of the various performing arts. The strong developmental emphasis of courses requires a particular blend of both practical and academic skills, and this often results in a relatively high number of contact hours.
