The Diploma in Applied Drama & Psychology journeys beyond performance, integrating the tools of drama with an understanding of psychology. The result is a powerful engine for education, social intervention and change.

At DADP, authentic learning means extending the boundaries of the classroom. Your assignments will give you the chance to work with communities, from children to seniors.


With the course, you will:
  • Draw on the expertise of leading dramatists through our Artist-in-Residence scheme and master classes. Embark on exciting overseas study trips and learn from international practitioners in theatre/ social service/ psychology fields.

  • Work with communities from a wide range of settings, such as schools, social service agencies and hospitals. Participate in a short immersion programme and/or intern with local drama companies, schools, government agencies and community development organisations.

  • Bring different stories to life in Black Box, our drama space with unlimited potential to transform itself, its players and its audience.

Combine your dramatic flair with the heart to make a difference in society.

"DADP is a course which enlightens both the heart and mind through self-reflection and meaningful lessons which, in turn, create a significant impact on our lives ... Singapore is in dire need of good arts educators to teach in schools and social welfare associations because they have recognised that drama is an important pedagogical tool to build a creative and cohesive community."
