|(3 cr.) Students trace the development of theater from the
Renaissance through the late 19th century and the
beginning of modern drama. This study of
performance traditions and dramatic literature
emphasizes the importance of locating dramatic
literature within its cultural, social and
historical contexts. An understanding of theater
history and literature is applied to creative
projects in which students develop concepts for
staging plays chosen from the course reading list.
