      "Theatre is a clear window into the mind, the soul, the heart of humankind—the study of which should be the aim of higher education. Theatre brings life to learning."

      Offering students the opportunity to seek answers is the mission of the department. To that end we seek to accomplish these learning goals:

      • To create an environment that is both rigorous and encouraging,

      • To provide direct learning experiences in the classroom and

      • To recognize indirect learning experiences outside of the classroom--intellectual, emotional, and physical,

      • To understand the need that each culture possesses for self-expression,

      • To embrace the collaborative nature of the discipline.
