Drama Department Goals

The drama curriculum is designed to offer a challenging theater arts program that encourages discovery, creativity and scholarship for those students whose special interests and talents lead them to the department of drama; to impart to all majors the formal preparation necessary for advanced academic or professional study; to offer Spelman students experiences in theater arts, by giving her broad-based exposure to the various aspects of drama; and to contribute to the cultural enrichment of Spelman College, the Atlanta University Center and the community at large.


After completing the drama major, students will be able to:

  • Demonstrate the skills necessary for advanced academic or professional study in drama or dance performance and/or history at graduate institutions and professional schools
  • Exhibit an appreciation of drama and dance arts
  • Articulate orally and in written form historical, literary, and theoretical knowledge of drama and dance forms
  • Demonstrate well-rounded development in the theater arts, including critical thinking skills, high-level skills in performing arts, and enhanced creativity
