Department of Theatre
Within the framework of the liberal arts philosophy, the Department of Theatre is committed to providing the nearest equivalent of pre-professional training of sufficient breadth, depth, and rigor that can be applied to a wide range of endeavors The program in theatre, therefore, is based on the belief that theory and practice are of equal and complementary value. Dramatic literature, history, and criticism give perspective, foundation, and knowledge that deepen the understanding of the theatre; theatrical production, on the other hand, gives concreteness to theory and offers bases for the interpretation of theatrical literature and history, in addition to providing avenues for self-expression.
The basic goals of the theatre program are met through disciplined study and practice integrated within the aim of the liberal arts program to produce students who can combine what they know about theatre with their insights into the human condition.
