Learn the art of dramatic performance to communicate creatively
The study of dramatic performance creates opportunities in performance, education, ministry, and other fields in which powerful communication is key. Performers engage and motivate audiences through verbal and nonverbal communication, extending far beyond the theater.
PCC’s performance studies program prepares students for this vital and energetic career by cultivating their abilities in dramatic presentation, public speaking, and stage productions. This program emphasizes the creative and logical development applicable for solo, dramatic, and informative performance. In preparation for a solo senior recital, students also learn characterization, narration, and vocal technique. Students gain experience through involvement in major stage productions in the Dale Horton Auditorium, dramatic productions in the Experimental Theater, and Sunday Reflections programs.
With this creative yet practical degree, students can choose from a variety of career options such as performance, education, ministry, and public relations, or enter graduate school to specialize in a chosen field.
