BA Dramatic Literature

Bachelor of Arts with a major in Dramatic Literature

Is an interdisciplinary major, combining coursework in the Department of English with courses in Theatre. If the 20th Century was the century where the theatre director emerged as King, many theatre professionals believe that the 21st Century will see the Dramaturge taking the throne.

The Dramatic Literature Major encourages a deeper study of the text and its relationship to performance. Playwriting, dramatic criticism, dramaturgy, directing are all areas that are enriched by this curriculum.


Special Honors: In addition to meeting the general requirements stated under University Regulations, candidates for graduation with Special Honors in Dramatic Literature must have a grade point average of 3.4 in the major and complete TrDa 199, Honors Thesis with a grade of A. They must consult with a faculty advisor at the beginning of the second semester of the junior year to determine eligibility, area of study, and the director of the research or creative project.
