The Dramaturgy Department at the Faculty of Dramatic Arts was founded in 1960 and modeled after the Yale School of Drama. For over 60 years, through undergraduate, master’s and doctoral studies, the Department has introduced students to various writing techniques and genres. Students learn particularities of dramaturgy in theater, film, radio, television, video games and copywriting.
Within the main courses (Film & Television Dramaturgy and Theater & Radio Dramaturgy), students are taught how to create original scripts and plays in accordance with the centuries-long heritage of theatre and film dramaturgy. Students come to classes with proposals that are analyzed through detailed group discussions. The bad ones are rejected, and the good ones are further developed to create a text that does not perish at the yearly exam but is ready for production.
The teaching staff at the Dramaturgy Department consists of professors, teaching assistants and other associates who actively participate in our society’s social and cultural life.
