Academics: Majors and Programs

A Place Where Passion and Creativity Begins

The walls of Dr. Eddie Bradley Jr.’s diminutive office are embellished with posters of theatrical great Paul Robeson, August Wilson’s “Fences” and “Two Trains Running,” and Pearl Cleage’s “Blues for an Alabama Sky.”  There is a student sitting behind his desk taking a test on Roman and medieval theater.  Chair of the drama and dance department, Bradley speaks passionately about his vision for the department.

"We are a faculty body who love what we do, and I am amazed to be here in this position, where the likes of Ann Cooke, Baldwin Burroughs and Mozell Spriggs have led. My goal as chair is to continue to build on their legacy, to send students to graduate school, pitch for a dance major, and continue to produce the great entertainment that this department has been known to do.”
