Department of Theatre Arts was established at UOG under social science and humanities department of Ethiopian languages and literature in the year 2005. After a year it received 11 students and started acting independently as a department.
While it had been established its mission was giving professional education for theatre arts students. Producing highly skilled theatre professionals for our specific theatre houses was also another mission of our department. Promoting art movement in and around Gondar as well as Ethiopia is also theatre arts departments’ mission.
As a vision Department of theatre arts look forward that University of Gondar and Gondar as a whole will be the center of art where there is high quality theatre houses are available.
