Theatre and Dance

The Department of Theatre and Dance offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in both theatre and dance. These programs combine traditional studies with practical training. Ambitious seasons of theatre productions and dance concerts feature student performers and student designers, directors, and choreographers. Guest artists of national and international fame often participate in curricular and extracurricular activities.

Speech, Language, and Hearing Sciences

The undergraduate program in speech, language, and hearing sciences (SLHS) introduces concepts basic to human communication, and provides opportunities for students to acquire an understanding of normal and disordered speech, language, and hearing processes. The curriculum for the undergraduate degree in SLHS has been designed to fulfill the prerequisite requirements for entrance into accredited graduate programs in speech-language pathology and audiology, but also provides a strong academic foundation for students with other professional goals.
