Taking a uniquely holistic view of performance to include the realms of theatrical production, storytelling, dance, performance art, and everyday life, the department challenges students to recognize performance as a method of analysis, a mode of inquiry, and a creative and aesthetic act.Our program offers a wide range of courses dedicated to developing students as scholar-artists, viewing both live performance as scholarship and writing as a creative act. The program provides opportunities for students to create, witness, and critique performances based on a variety of sources from dramatic scripts to literary and folk traditions, original ethnographic field research, and personal narratives. Inherent within this premise lies an ardent commitment to provide global learning opportunities to students as vital to their individual and social growth.
