Dramatic Arts Programme

The Dramatic Arts Programme has been established at our Academy by the decision of the National Assembly of the Republic of Srpska. The Academy is designed as a contemporary educational, artistic and scientific institution. We follow the latest achievements of contemporary artistic and scientific practices and the best traditions of the world pedagogy in higher arts education. The Academy of Arts has quickly developed into an important institution, one of the most successful organizational units of the University of Banja Luka.

There are many reasons socially justified for our existing. One of them is the historical fact that an educational institution of this kind has never existed in the region of the Republic of Srpka before. Also, many exceptional dramatic artists were born here but educated in other areas. Therefore, only since recently the National Theatre of the Republic of Srpska in its eighty year long existence has its own cadre trained at our Academy. On the other hand, modern media, film and television as essential social factors have a crucial influence on the overall social image. Hence, these personnel are in the literal sense of dire necessity. The Dramatic Arts Programme is due to educate all personnel necessary for the artistic field and therefore contains the following departments:

1. Acting

2. Theater Directing

3. Dramaturgy

4. Film and Television

- Film and Television Directing

- Editing

- Camera

5. Animated Film

6. Production
