Philosophy and Goals

To offer the highest level of instruction in a comprehensive curriculum, which serves the non-major, the exploratory, or serious drama student. For the latter, we recommend an interdisciplinary course of study, strongly based in the humanities, leading to an A.A.S. degree with emphasis in drama.

  • A balanced curriculum.
  • Instructionally linked performance opportunities for drama and other majors.
  • Equipment for support of productions.
  • Staff of faculty, classified staff and students.
  • Counseling/guidance for students interested in pursuing an education or career in the theatre.

“Theatrical representation is finite and leaves behind it, behind its actual presence, no trace, no object to carry off. It is neither a book nor a work, but an energy, and in this sense it is the only art of life.”

-Jacques Derrida
