Dramatic Arts

Division of Humanities

The Dramatic Arts Program seeks to provide a balanced and comprehensive theatre experience for all students. We offer classes for both majors and non-majors that provide a thorough foundation in theatrical history, theory, and literature as well as training in acting, directing, design, and technical theatre. Thus, students are prepared for graduate education and for employment in any field that values high level communication skills as well as for careers in theatre as teacher, artist, technician or manager.

In preparation for their graduate school and/or a professional career, majors are required, as part of their senior seminar experience, to reflect upon their time in the drama program at Centre College. This reflection process involves a public “exhibition” of their four years of work within the program. Student are therefore encouraged to save the physical evidence of work (programs, photographs, models, masks, drawings, designs etc.) for this display.

For the student body at large, the program affords the opportunity to experience, as audience or participants, a wide range of dramatic forms selected both to educate and to entertain.
