For 50 years, the Shanghai Theatre Academy has produced professionals for theatre, film, television and fine arts.

To meet the needs of development and to enhance the academic quality, the Department of Television Arts was set up in 1993. Television Editing, Arts Editing, and Decoration Design are the three courses offered in the department. An evaluation system was set up to judge the curriculum and the credit system has been adopted. About 100 optional courses are also provided for greater stimuli.
