The program in dramatic literature offers students the opportunity to specialize in the critical, theoretical, literary, and historical aspects of theatre studies. In addition to courses offered each semester by the program’s core faculty in the Department of English, students take classes on theatre, drama, and performance in departments and schools throughout NYU, including practice-based courses. Students engage with works and traditions of drama and theatre dating from ancient times to the present, and take advantage of New York’s incomparably rich theatre landscape. An honors program is available for qualified students.
