THEATRE 309. Theatre History I:Greek to 19th Century. 3 Credits.
This course will focus on the development of Western theatre history and literature from the Ancient Greeks to the late 19th century. Students will make connections between the cultural practices (politics, religion, social life, etc.) of a particular time and place and the theatre that was produced by it. This will not only lead to a fuller understanding of the origins of this work, but should help the student become a more sophisticated and informed artist and/or audience member when considering the dramatic offerings of today, including television, films and web content.
