Speech & Drama



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.
