English

Bethany College gives students the choice between a major in English education, a major in English, or a minor in English.

Through the English program, students master the skills of critical thinking and advanced writing techniques. Bethany also places heavy emphasis on community relations so students gain the skills necessary to be leaders in their fields as well as their communities.

Communication & Theatre

The mission of Bethany College Theatre and Communication is firmly rooted in the mission of the college: to challenge the students to perform the spoken word as a means of communication both clearly and artistically and to nurture in students a sense of confidence and responsibility in their communication art.

The purposes are:

  • to create an environment in which students are nurtured and challenged to seek and acquire knowledge broadly in the disciplines of Theatre, Communication, and Performance Studies.
  • to enable students to develop reading, writing, research, and critical thinking skills in those disciplines and beyond.
  • to allow students to hone their talents as performers, designers, directors, playwrights, speakers and communicators.
  • to enable students to understand the relationship between oral communication as performance and theatrical performance as communication.
