ASU was established in 1981 as an Academy with an acting department only, the first institution of its kind in Bosnia Herzegovina. In time Academy expanded its scope and now operates with four departments, both on BA and MA level: Acting,
Directing, Writing and Production. There is one sub-department for camera, editing and sound design. With heavy praxis-orientated courses in its core, Academy quickly gained good reputation throughout the region of ex – Yugoslavia. Today, Academy attracts many foreign students who make up to 40% percent of all the students, the fact we take as a clear sign of our openness and high quality work.
