Queen’s University has launched a new ‘laddered’ Graduate Diploma and Master’s program that will provide students interested in pursuing or accelerating their career in the arts with a 360-degree view of the arts and culture industry.

Through the programs, offered by the Dan School of Drama and Music in collaboration with the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, students can earn a Graduate Diploma in Arts Management with the successful completion of the six-week term, or continue with the Master’s in Arts Leadership.

Queen’s and St. Lawrence collaborate on Bachelor of Music Theatre program

Queen’s University and St. Lawrence College celebrated an exciting new collaboration on a one-of-a-kind Bachelor of Music Theatre program at the Isabel Bader Centre.

A highlight of the official signing were performances from St. Lawrence and Queen’s music theatre students from popular musicals including Pippen and The Sound of Music.

Five Queen's University professors have been elected as fellows to the Royal Society of Canada (RSC), one of the highest honours for Canadian academics in the arts, humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. The five newest fellows from Queen's have a wide variety of research interests, including drama, philosophy, art history, and mathematics.

Queen’s University announced today the naming of the Dan School of Drama and Music, in honour of Aubrey and Marla Dan and their donation of $5 million to the school.

For years, drama and music scholarship have been regarded as separate fields of study. Slowly, though, that’s changing, and Queen’s School of Music and the Department of Drama have come together to take advantage of that trend.

The School of Drama and Music officially came into existence on July 1 after years of planning. Queen’s Senate approved the merger in April.

Established by Dr. Sherry L. Dupuis, B.Mus. 1985, and Dr. Bryan Smale.
