The purposes of the Communication & Theatre Arts Department 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.
