The study of Theatre, Drama and Performance examines the relationship between the artists who create written texts intended for production, the artists who turn scripts into performances, and the audiences who experience the resulting theatrical event. It is the study of the event itself, and the acts of creation involved in producing that event. Understanding Theatre, Drama and Performance involves the study of plays, actors, theatres, designers and audiences from the classical Greek stage to the most modern experimental performance.

The focus of Theatre, Drama and Performance Studies at U of T Mississauga, both curricular and extra-curricular, is the Erindale Studio Theatre and the Multi-Media Studio Theatre. The Erindale Studio Theatre is used for performances of Theatre Erindale, the production company of the Specialist Program, and for performances of the U of T Mississauga Drama Club. MiST is used for teaching and co-curricular and extra-curricular performances by all programs.

Courses in related topics are given in many disciplines. A list of these courses is given in the General Notes for All Programs below, and students interested in the field are advised to consider taking some of them. No more than a combination of 15.0 Drama-related courses may be taken.

No more than 1.5 credits can be double counted towards two programs of study in English, Drama, or Creative Writing.
