DRAM 246 and DRAM 247. While the DAN School cancelled DRAM 246 and DRAM 247 in the fall term, it is now possible to submit winter-term DRAM 246 or DRAM 247 applications for your involvement in approved shows, projects or virtual presentations.

Applications are required for both courses with a deadline of January 15, 2021. Email the Application Form to Katherine Peter peterk@queensu.ca who will notify you upon approval and then register you in the course.

Directed Special Studies for Fourth-Year Students: As announced earlier, the professors of the fall term courses, DRAM-339/Puppetry Design and MUSC-245/Principles of Performing Arts Education in Online, Blended, and Face-to-Face Environments, have indicated that fourth-year students taking their course could, if approved, undertake a research project in the subject matter by developing a proposal for a Directed Special Study (DRAM-501 or MUSC-501) in the winter term.  If interested, more information and an application form can be found under DRAM-501 and MUSC-501 on the course list below, noting that the deadline for receipt of applications coming out of these two courses has been set for November 15, 2020.  Additionally, the November 15, 2020 deadline is available to any fourth-year student to submit an application for a Directed Special Study (DRAM/MUSC/MUTH-501) noting that it usually takes a few weeks to prepare an application form and line up an advisor.

Courses are listed alphabetically/numerically by areas: DRAM, ENIN, MAPP, MUSC and MUTH.
