Courses offered by the Department of Drama have the subject codes DRAMA and DANCE. Courses in Drama are listed in the "Drama [DRAMA] Courses" section of this bulletin. Courses in Dance are listed in the "Dance [DANCE] Courses" sections of this bulletin.


The Drama Department integrates theory, criticism and performance. Convinced that scholarship is strengthened by direct engagement in performance, and that performance is enhanced by practitioners whose analytic skills had been honed in scholarship, the department produces more than a dozen productions each academic school year, including canonical plays, commissioned dance works, experimental projects, and the work of visiting artists.
