Filling a gap in the teaching of performing arts in Portugal, focused mainly on the traditional scenic arts and thus overlooking developments brought about by the use of technologies as creative tools, this course aims to match the emergence of new job requirements in the field of artistic production and its linkages with the field of communication. So, it will provide transdisciplinary skills enabling its graduates to assert themselves as producers and creators and to acknowledge and integrate multiple art forms, responding to the new challenges in these areas and to the requirements of a growing and expanding market. This purpose will be aimed at, however, through recognition of the technical background of the traditional scenic and dramatic arts. In sum, it is intended to strengthen national academic learning and production with autonomous, flexible professionals, responsive to current transformations of national and international artistic contexts.
