The four-year B.A. program encourages students to examine and experience the relationship between drama as literary artifact and drama as performance. Students learn the skills necessary to translate the written word into a living, breathing, dynamic art.
By working with the technical side of dramatic presentation, students develop invaluable problem-solving skills, build leadership qualities and learn to work successfully in a team environment. You learn skills that keep you calm in a crisis, keep your mind flexible, make you versatile and courageous, and train you to have a critical eye.
As in all liberal arts programs, students develop flexibility of mind, clarity and precision in written and oral communication, and an ability to negotiate an ever more complex world.
