The minor program in dramatic arts (at least 18 semester hours) provides experience and training that enable students to develop an appreciation for and knowledge of theatre and how it is intrinsically connected to humanity.  Students have opportunities to participate in dramatic performances, including acting, directing, designing, and playwriting. They also gain experience with lighting and sound effects which contribute to their creative development. Equally important, the program enables students to participate in national and international organizations and attend conferences. Through dramatic arts, students are encouraged to excel in literary and creative expression and are supported and nurtured by scholars and professionals in the field
