Minor - Dramaturgy

University Campus

Dare to become an extraordinary thinker, writer and artist.

In Saint Leo’s Dramaturgy program, you’ll learn about all aspects of theater, from playwriting to stage performance to technical production. Explore the cultural contexts of drama, and learn to adapt stories for both the stage and mass media, whether as a playwright, dramaturge, artistic or executive director, stage manager, designer, critic, performer or administrator.
