The scientific journal Studia Universitatis Babeş-Bolyai Dramatica came into being at the beginning of the year 2006 and its publication frequency has been constantly that of one issue per semester. It is thus one of the most recent academic publications within the large Studia journal series of the "Babeş-Bolyai" University. The creation of Studia UBB Dramatica is directly linked to the development of the Faculty of Theater and Television, which has become in 2005 an independent, modern, and dynamic institution (from 1991 to 2005 it had functioned as a department within the Faculty of Letters).

Due to the fact that the Faculty of Theater and Television offers programs of study in Performing Arts (the department of Theatre: Acting, Directing and Theatre Studies and Criticism), as well as in Visual Arts (the department of CFM: Cinema, Film Theory, Photography and Media), the journal Studia UBB Dramatica has gathered, from its very first issue, articles, studies, essays, interviews, performance, film and book reviews, illustrating the variety of the fields of interest of the teachers and the students of this Faculty.

During its evolution, the journal has always been trying to adapt itself to the scientific demands of the specialized literature, at the level of the content as well as at that of the form. Famous personalities of the Performing Arts field, such as Silviu Purcărete, George Banu, Andrei Şerban, Visky Andras, Marian Popescu, Marc Bogaerts, Monique Banu Borie, David Zinder, Claudia Tatinge Nascimento, have given interviews or have published in the pages of our journal.

Untill 2011, the months of issue of Studia UBB Dramatica have been June and December, each issue being coordinated by a Chief Issue editor chosen cyclically, among the editorial staff. Starting with 2012, our journal follows the current dates of issuing specific to the reference international publications in the field: March and October. Concerning the responsibility of the professional issuing of our journal, the work of the editorial staff (composed of prestigious professors of the faculty, as well as of specialists of national and international fame) is coordinated, besides the Issue Editor, by a new Chief Editor (Professor Liviu Maliţa) and a new Managing Editor (Lecturer Ştefana Pop-Curşeu).
