Name of creator
The Musical Theatre diploma appears for the first time in the 1976-1977 academic calendar. In the 1978-1979 calendar, it appears as the Theatre Arts program with an option for a Technical Diploma. The department was housed at the Jasper Place / Centre for the Arts and Communications campus from 1981 until campus closure in 2017, when it moved to Allard Hall at City Centre Campus. At that time part of the Faculty of Fine Arts and Communications, the department consisted of two diploma programs: Theatre Arts, and Theatre Production. In 2022, it became part of the Bachelor of Fine Arts with the two majors Music Theatre Performance and Theatre Production.
