The Faculty of Arts launched a special two-semester Hungarian-language program for any student of the University of Debrecen interested in the theory and practice of the theatre in 2007. The program consists of two kinds of seminars and workshops: 1.) theoretical discussions of various issues of the art of the theatre conducted by invited experts from all around Hungary and Europe; 2.) watching and analysing certain productions of the Csokonai Theatre, Debrecen, with the participation of one or two members of the production staff. Since the program works as a discussion seminar or workshop rather than lecturing, there is a quantitative limit of the participants. Therefore, applying students are selected on the basis of the quality of their essays written on their subjective analysis and/or experience of theatre. The program ends with a home essay either on one of the theoretical issues discussed during the academic year or on any of the theatre productions seen and analyzed within the program.
