The Department of Theater changes its name to become the Department of Theater and Dance
Body of the review
To more accurately describe the production work and scholarship of the department, and in accordance with higher education standards, the Department of Drama changed its name to the Department of Drama and Dance.
“In an effort to more clearly reflect what we do as both a training program and research department, we are pleased to announce that we are now the theater and dance department,” said Chase Bringardner, chairman of the department. “This significant shift from the Drama Department to the Drama and Dance Department more closely reflects and more clearly articulates the work we do as an academic unit and a production-focused program engaged in a variety of high-impact practices.
Auburn University’s Department of Theater and Dance is dedicated to the education and professional training of theater artists, academics and the public in a liberal arts environment. The department champions the interplay between theory and practice and produces citizen artists who champion the arts through their own work in local, national and international communities. Auburn University’s theater and dance students think critically, creatively and collaboratively, and bring their knowledge from rehearsal spaces and classrooms to stages, campuses and communities around the world.
Course numbers, descriptions and content will remain the same.
