Department of Theater Arts

In 1991, the Department of Theatre Arts was formed as part of the College of Arts and Social Science, and became the first undergraduate theatre program in the Sultanate of Oman that offered a bachelor of Arts in three major areas of concentration; acting and directing, drama and criticism, and stage design. The department focused its efforts on developing students’ artistic as well as practical skill by offering them a solid foundation of history, theory, literature, and practical experience in theatre. 

The department of Theatre Arts is dedicated to the enrichment of the cultural environment at the university and the Sultanate through education— as it offers elective courses to a large number of Sultan Qaboos University undergraduates who are non-theatre majors—research, workshops, lectures, production opportunities, and consultation for public and private establishments in the Sultanate.
