Introduction to Drama

ENG2300 Introduction to Drama (3)

This course traces the role of drama as an art form used to communicate values and ideas, beginning with the analysis of Greek drama, then tracing the development of drama through the medieval theater, and finally the birth of modern theater (including an analysis of comedy and tragedy as distinct dramatic art forms.) The principles of oral interpretation, reader's theater, pantomime, and choral reading are practiced as students combine these art forms in creative presentations.
