Stage & Screen

Combining courses from film and Media, along with drama, stage and screen is ideal for students interested in exploring both these fields and in drawing together the lessons to be learned in each. Every year, the program invites a director, writer, or other notable professional working in theatre, film or television to come to Kingston as our stage and screen visiting artist. Students have an opportunity to work with and take classes from this distinguished artist who, in addition to sharing experiences, also gives a presentation for a broader Queen’s and Kingston audience.
