At the University of Winnipeg

Specific information relating to course content is listed in the University of Winnipeg Calendar. Not all courses listed there are offered each year, but they are rotated depending on the availability of staff and the requirements of the program. Click here for a current copy of our Calendar and Timetable (choose the Timetable which reflects your term choice) or contact our Records Office at (204) 786-9256. The Calendar describes general university policy and provides particular information relating to our Theatre program. In any given year you must use the University Timetable in conjunction with the Calendar. The Timetable lists specific details of what courses are offered, when and where, who teaches them, and exam information.

In order to register for any courses at the University of Winnipeg students must first apply for admission [call (204) 786-9159 for information]. There are three terms: Fall (September-December), Winter (January-April), and Spring (end of April-July). Full and half courses are arranged over one or two terms with the majority being taught from September through April. The Department of Theatre and Film, generally relies on Fall and Winter terms to teach, however we do offer a limited number of courses in the Spring term and have sometimes run a popular intermediate course which culminates in the production of a fully-mounted show in the Winnipeg International Fringe Festival in July.

In 1999, the University acquired the former Salvation Army Citadel building adjacent to the main campus as the new home of the Department of Theatre and Film. Three construction phases have followed and now major construction on the Asper Centre for Theatre and Film is largely completed. We hope to fully complete the building in the near future but virtually all of our enhanced spaces are already operational. Nevertheless we continue with some internal developments and to equip our new home but we are very excited about the opportunities this acquisition provides and we have already seen a 150% increase in registration since moving to the new spaces.

Questions? We strongly recommend that all new students seek student advising.
Those wishing to pursue a major in Theatre or Film are advised to contact the Department office at (204) 786-9955
