The Drama concentration and minor offer courses in acting, directing, playwriting, and dramatic literature. Our drama students also enjoy frequent collaborations with Baltimore-area theaters, including recent acting and directing workshops with artists from the American Shakespeare Center, Center Stage, and Single Carrot Theater.
