The Faculty will teach and create theater as a liberal art in the context of a traditional liberal arts institution. This means that students will learn how to think critically and creatively about an important body of material, and how to give those thoughts scholarly and artistic expression. Instruction in theater will be both theoretical and practical; it will combine knowledge and skill. Students will be required to test theory in creative practice and to demonstrate skill in imaginative performance. Courses in theater will provide a comprehensive introductory training in all areas of theater, giving equal emphasis to artistic training and the study of the literature and history of the world stage. Training will be augmented by departmental productions of the most demanding and challenging works of both classical and contemporary artists.
