  2. Communication and Collaboration by:
    • Using fundamentals to give constructive feedback to peers
    • Communicating skillfully and responsibly with mentors
    • Expressing themselves effectively in front of a group
    • Collaborating with peers in both writing and producing works
    • Manifesting a personal approach within the techniques of linear and non-linear dramatic writing, to contextualize their own choices within a range of dramatic and/or cinematic literary history and theory.
  3. The ability to think critically by:
    • Evaluating their world-view and expressing a position in the context of their liberal arts studies
    • Synthesizing the critiques of others for revision of their own work and research
    • Gathering and synthesizing information from a variety of sources and present it in a structured, coherent manner, both in writing and orally in areas outside of dramatic writing.
