Dare to become an extraordinary thinker, writer and artist. 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.

Wow audiences in campus productions. Perform in musical revues and community concerts with University Concert Band, Drama Ministry and Voices of Christ. Host a show on WLSL (Saint Leo) Radio.
