Transform your creative vision with technical theatre and arts management skills, and direct your career in the arts.
Immerse yourself in the vibrant world of arts and culture. At the Diploma in Arts & Theatre Management (DATM), you will learn how to balance a keen aesthetic eye with core technical skills and develop perspectives from both local and international practices.
Discover everything about arts management, stagecraft, production design, lighting, sound, stage, and
production management. You will also gain access to state-of-the-art theatre facilities, such as our purpose-built Blackbox Theatre at The Republic Cultural Centre, to polish your technical expertise in theatre and live entertainment.
Gain a head start through interning with big names in the creative industry. At DATM, amass all the essentials you need for a fulfilling and successful career where your passion lies.
When you graduate, you will be equipped to embark on a rewarding career in the arts and theatre scene,
locally and internationally.
In this industry, we are expected to be creative while working with limited resources and constraints. In DATM, we learn to think outside the box and work realistically within boundaries. We are given a lot of exploratory space to experiment and having been able to work with people of different roles opens my mind. Our lecturers constantly share with us valuable industry experiences, and emphasise on the importance of staying curious.
You can look forward to operational, administrative, technical, and managerial positions in arts venues and organisations, theatre and production companies, as well as theme parks.
