Training in speech and drama will help individual students in all areas of oral communication ranging from audience analysis to effective use of voice. Classes work on organization of ideas and clear use of language as well as effective performance techniques.
All courses are activity-oriented and require students to perform a significant number of different types of speeches. Drama courses are designed to acquaint the student with the basics in many different areas of theatrical production. In addition to the course work, there are drama productions in which students can exercise and extend their talents both on and off stage. All students, regardless of classroom experience, are encouraged to take part in all productions.
