High School Drama is Real
Taking courses from our communications, theatre and education department, you will develop the skills you need to become an in-demand high school teacher who will inspire your students. You will practice your own skills in debate, public speaking and theatre productions, both in front of an audience and behind the scenes. With your experience, you will be prepared to step into a classroom and give your students the confidence to speak and act in public. Those communication skills are highly sought after by employers from every college graduate.
The C-SC Difference
From your freshman year, you will be placed in a high school to observe and learn about your future career. In your sophomore and junior years, you will not only observe, but begin to practice with short lessons in two more schools. Finally, your senior year you will be placed into a student teacher position where you will be able to work under a master teacher and gain confidence to take the first step into your future teaching career. Simultaneously you will have wonderful opportunities beginning your freshman year to be a part of theatre performances. You will learn skills in acting, but also makeup, costumes, lighting and scenery. You will develop your own confidence within your coursework and best of all, we offer scholarships for students in our fine arts program.
