The Performing Arts course of study offers a diverse range of classes on the theory and practice of theatre, performance and other forms of popular culture. Artistic experiments with body and space, theoretical reflection and the translation into various forms of expression augment each other.

You will learn the individual steps and phases of a theatrical production from the conceptual development of the idea, the selection of material in addition to research, rehearsal and realisation to multimedia presentations of performances. You will acquire a broad range of knowledge and skills, for example in the fields of voice and body work, dramaturgy and contextualisation.

You will ideally attend classes at five Lower Saxon universities. Aside from the
HBK Braunschweig, these are the Leibniz University Hannover, the Hannover
University for Music, Theatre and Media, Hildesheim University and the Technical University Braunschweig. The course of study is a cooperative one.
The options involved in the double-major B.A. degree course are accordingly
diverse: At the HBK Braunschweig you can combine the Performing Arts major with the minors German Studies, English Studies, Communication Design, Aesthetics & Art History as well as Media Studies.

The successful completion of the Bachelor’s degree is the prerequisite for admission to a subsequent M.A. degree course. To the extent that you intend
on teaching Performing Arts and German or English at secondary schools
or comprehensive schools, we also offer you a corresponding M.A. degree course that opens the way to preparatory school service.
