    The Department of Speech Communication, Theatre, and Dance offers study in speech communication, theatre, and dance.

    See speech secondary education requirements, College of Education, for teacher certification.

    Speech communication
    The speech communication program, which encompasses both communication theory and rhetorical arts, has two instructional goals. First, the program attempts to improve a student's communication skills in developing messages that are clear, coherent, reasoned, and fluent. Course work in public speaking, group and interpersonal communication, and co-curricular activities in debate and individual events provide opportunities to acquire practical communication skills. Second, the program attempts to develop a student's ability to analyze communication in different social, political, and organizational settings. Course work in rhetorical theory, history, and criticism focuses on the study of speech and language used to achieve practical ends. A major in speech communication would be appropriate for anyone who plans to enter a career that is communication-intensive, such as law, education, health professions, business, or government.

    In addition to the general university and college requirements for the B.A. or B.S. degree, an undergraduate major in speech communication is required to take 37 hours of course work in the Department of Speech Communication, Theatre, and Dance. All majors will complete 7 required hours and 15 hours in one of the division's five academic tracks of legal communication, organizational communication, political communication, relational communication, or rhetorical studies. All speech communication majors will also complete 15 hours in speech communication electives.

    Theatre and dance
    The mission of the theatre program is to develop human potential, expand knowledge, and enrich cultural understanding and expression through high quality undergraduate and graduate education. Through scholarship/ research, service, and production, the theatre program seeks to train future artists, scholars and teachers of theatre, and to inform the nonmajor, the university at large, and the surrounding community of the value of theatre to individuals and society.

    The major in theatre emphasizes the education of students for professional career goals or for cultural enrichment as an avocation. The objective of the program is to offer broad training, but also the possibility of specialization. Training is available in all areas of theatre, including scenic, costume, lighting and sound design, theatre history and literature, acting, directing, playwriting, management, drama therapy, and dance. The goals of the program are to offer a liberal arts program in theatre; to prepare students for advanced professional training or graduate school; and to provide the basic theatre skills for the bachelor's candidate. K-State is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Theater.

    Theatre major
    A major consists of 40 hours in theatre and 6 hours in tool courses in other areas of the department.

    Dance
    K-State's program provides professional studio training in partnership with a rich foundation in the liberal arts. We seek to produce creative problem solvers with strong analytical and critical thinking skills with the ability to speak and write effectively about dance and its relationship to the rest of the curriculum. K-State dance graduates are expected to demonstrate a breadth of knowledge in addition to a more focused career option and to view dance as a vital part of society and culture.
    The dance program offers dance in a liberal arts setting and provides education in dance as a performing art and a field of intellectual endeavor. The program provides strong, versatile training in ballet, modern, jazz, and musical stage dance techniques as well as movement analysis/styles, aesthetics, history, teaching methodology, fieldwork, and dance production.
    Talent scholarships are available and are awarded each spring based on an audition and interview. Further scholarship information is available upon request.
