Bachelor Of Arts In Performing Arts

Fees Detail


Degree Code: C01 Degree Name: Bachelor of Arts in Performing Arts Degree Type: BACHELOR Degree Duration: 4 Degree Description: Click to View Introduction Oral Literature, theatre, and music performance are the foundations of written literature. The fields of Oral literature and Theatre have grown tremendously in Kenya over the recent years, and the enthusiasm of students to learn and express themselves in these fields is overwhelming. This interest by students calls for the establishment of courses in the Performing Arts. This proposal for the establishment of a B.A. degree in Performing Arts is meant to address the lacuna in the teaching of this specialized area in the University of Nairobi. Moreover, the University of Nairobi?s vision to become a world class university, necessitates research, documentation and production of African art forms which take into consideration the fast growing culture of globalisation. This should happen if the fields of oral literature, music, dance and theatre arts were to come together in the teaching of the art of performance. The need to establish courses in the Performing Arts is also informed by an expanding popular culture and entertainment industry that needs professional performers. The production of plays, films, documentaries, song, music and dance for public consumption either in live shows or on Television has created a demand for artists who are qualified to understand and respond to the aesthetic needs of society. The teaching of courses in these areas is meant to produce artists who can come up with innovative plays, films, documentaries, songs, dances and so on, to satisfy an ever-changing market demand. Furthermore, given the government?s stated desire to promote Kenyan culture, the B.A. in Performing Arts is geared towards graduating individuals who will produce locally relevant artwork. Such productions will go towards fulfilling the demand for local content by local radio and TV stations. Fees Structure Kshs 7,200 per unit and Kshs 500/- per exam.
