Theatre Arts Objectives

The mission of the Language, Theatre, and Communication Arts Department at Eastern Nazarene College is to serve God, the church, and the world by bringing the Word alive in each of our students. This work involves exposing students to investigations of language’s power and expanding their awareness of how linguistic constructs open themselves up to diverse and divergent interpretations. Viewing each of our students as creations of a creative and communicating God, the department strives to sharpen their critical and creative faculties by developing their capacities to read with imagination, think and write critically, and make the word incarnate on the stage.
