The courses in the speech and drama curriculum are
designed to develop specific skills and attitudes that will be
useful to students in other courses and in effective
communications with people. A variety of courses in this
area are designed to give all students an opportunity to
reach their full potential as intelligent, imaginative,
creative, logical thinkers and speakers. Speech/Drama
courses teach students where to look and what to look for
in gathering support for an idea. They also help students
learn to give, to accept and to follow constructive criticism;
listen courteously and critically as others speak; become
more logical, more direct and more creative in organizing
thoughts for presentation; learn to control the fear of
speaking or performing before an audience and, as a result,
become a more confident person.
Please see the Speech-Drama Curriculum Guide for course information.
