Speech and drama examine the way we communicate with one another and the multiple ways in which we can express that communication. An area of study that explores human behavior through storytelling, students are able to design, perform in, and run up to six different productions that appear on the stage of SCCC's Showcase Theater. During their course of study, students gain experience in modern drama and comedy, experimental works, original works, musical theater, and classical dramas and comedies. Students who study speech and drama at SCCC receive a firm foundation of courses, enabling them to transfer to a four-year institution to continue their education. In addition, skills that are learned throughout their education including oral communication, team development, and time management, make speech and drama graduates appealing candidates for employment in multiple fields.
