About

The Drama program of Vassar College is multidisciplinary and requires us to engage politics, social sciences, and philosophy, as well as other art forms. We assume that there is no one truth or correct methodology, but rather multiple solutions to the questions we pose.

Overview

Key Features

The curriculum of the Drama program of Vassar College reflects our mission for both non-majors and majors: to encourage students to read deeply and to understand the basics of literary-critical analysis through phenomenological and practical means. Drama 102, “Introduction to Theater Making,” reflects our teaching philosophy and our collaborative process. It is designed to engage students as critical audience members and to help them move beyond purely emotional reactions to critical judgment and analysis. In these ways, the course fulfills the college's mission of helping students to develop their powers of reason and imagination through processes of analysis and synthesis.

By the time drama majors leave Vassar, we expect them to be familiar with the history of world theater and dramatic literature from its ancient Greek beginnings to the present. We also expect students to have developed the ability to think critically about both dramatic texts and theatrical productions and to be able to express original critical and analytical thoughts through clear prose. Finally, we expect students to have gained an understanding of and practical ability in the various elements of theatrical production: acting, directing, design, dramaturgy and technical theater.
