ENGL116 - Introduction to Drama

Credits: 3

Drama combines the literary arts of storytelling and poetry with the world of live performance. As a form of literature, ritual, and entertainment, drama has served to unite communities and challenge social norms, to energize and disturb its audiences. In order to understand this rich art form more fully, students will study and discuss a sampling of plays that exemplify different kinds of dramatic structure; class members will also attend and review dramatic performances.
