Department of Speech and Theatre

 

Our goal in the department of Speech and theatre, at Southern University A & M College is to provide a discursive environment for students to study and learn the fundamental practices of both speech and theatre. To train and graduate professionals whose discursive skill sets will apply in many fields. Those concentrating in theatre performance have the opportunity to put classroom theory into practice on stage, learn to effectively market themselves professionally, and to grow into successful artistic entrepreneurs. We do this by working diligently to provide focused attention to each and every student providing a challenging discursive environment and performance-oriented approach to all aspects of instruction. In the end, we seek to effectively prepare our students to meet the future by encouraging them to pursue post-baccalaureate studies, or other advanced training in their chosen fields.
