Speech is man's fundamental mode of communication. It is the principal means
through which men exchange ideas and feelings. It provides a method of inquiry
and reporting and is used to inform, to persuade, to provide inspiration, and to

Human communication may be studied as a fine art, investigated scientifical-
ly, or analyzed as a rhetorical art. Students majoring in the Department of
Speech and Dramatic Arts may eventually become teachers, directors, actors,
clinicians, or members of any one of several related professions.

The Department of Speech and Dramatic Arts offers majors in three different
areas: communicative habilitation, dramatic arts, and speech. Each of these areas
is discussed in detail below. Students planning to teach in high school should
see the speech and dramatic arts education major below and/or secondary edu-
cation certification in the Education section of this catalog.

Graduate Study. Each major area in the department offers a challenging pro-
gram for graduate study leading to the master's degree. A doctoral degree may
be earned in dramatic arts. Students planning graduate work must apply for ad-
mission to the Graduate School at the conclusion of their senior year. Applica-
tion forms may be obtained at the office of the Graduate School, D-208 ASB.
The requirements for admission are in the Graduate School Catalog.

Communicative Habilitation

The area of communicative habilitation developed out of concern for people with
communication impairments. The profession offers many opportunities for service
to people who are handicapped in their ability to talk, hear, or use the symbols
of language. Specifically, the department offers preparation in the fields of speech
pathology, audiology, education of the partially hearing, and communication
science. Students who complete these programs are prepared for employment as
specialists in communicative habilitation in schools, hospitals, rehabilitation cen-
ters and other community agencies, and private practice. Professional certifica-
tion in Utah and many other states, as well as in the American Speech and
Hearing Association, requires the completion of a master's degree. Upon com-
pletion of the baccalaureate degree, there are frequent opportunities for students
to obtain financial assistance to support them while they complete their re-
quired graduate study.


Required Courses. The courses required for the bachelor's degree with a major

in communicative habilitation are as follows (30 hours):

Sp. and Dram. Arts 231, 232, 340, 351, 352, 381R, 382R, 440, 450, and 485.

(Majors take Sp. and Dram. Arts 101 and 121 for humanities general education


Professional Graduate Training. Full professional training requires the attain-
ment of the master's degree. The bachelor's degree does not qualify a student
for full-time professional employment. Additional course work beyond the mas-
ter's degree is necessary to complete professional training and be eligible for
certification in communicative habilitation. These additional courses are dis-
cussed following the descriptions of professional certifications given below.

1. The American Speech and Hearing Association Certificate of Clinical Compe-
tence in Speech Pathology may be obtained through the graduate professional
training program.

2. The American Speech and Hearing Association Certificate of Clinical Compe-
tence in Audiology may be obtained through the graduate professional train-
ing program.

3. Utah State Department of Public Instruction Professional Certificate for Pub-
lic School Speech and Hearing Correctionist is obtained by earning the mas-
ter's degree, with the prescribed undergraduate minor in education.

4. Utah State Department of Public Instruction Professional Certificate for
Teachers of Special Education Classes for Partially Hearing Pupils is obtained
by earning the master's degree, along with appropriate professional educa-
tion courses.

Minor Fields of Study. On the undergraduate level, the minor required for com-
municative habilitation majors is education. For this minor the following courses
are required: Ed. 260, 301, 402, 421, and 449; Math. 305.

Application to Major in Communicative Habilitation. Students beginning their
professional courses in communicative habilitation in their sophomore year may
expect to enroll for fieldwork in the public schools during the Fall Semester of
their senior year. Those who begin later may have to defer this school practicum
until the fifth year. Those entering the communicative habilitation field Jifter the
freshman year should consult the coordinator of the communicative habilitation
area for approved variations of the normal sequence.

Students who intend to major in communicative habilitation must make appli-
cation to enter the program. Application must be made no later than eight weeks
before the semester in which the student wishes to enroll for the professional
courses, which begin with Sp. and Dram. Arts 340 or 351. Application is made to
the program office in F-411 HFAC. When a student is accepted by the program
as a major, his major course sequence is outlined for him for his entire program.
Without clearance, a student cannot register for Sp. and Dram. Arts 340, 351,
440, or 485.

Graduate Professional Training (Fifth Year)

In order to complete their professional training, it is necessary that students
complete most 500- and 600-level courses in the area of their specialty; namely,
(1) speech pathology, (2) audiology, or (3) teaching of partially hearing pupils.
Another integral part of the graduate student's program is the internship ex-
perience in one or more field agencies.

Students must consult the Graduate School Catalog to determine require-
ments for admission to and graduation from the Graduate School of Brigham
Young University. After completing requirements for the bachelor's degree, the
student may no longer enroll in the College of Fine Arts and Communications,
but must apply for admission to the Graduate School. The necessary application
materials are obtainable from the office of the Graduate School, D-208 ASB.

Qualifying Procedures

After each student has completed nine semester hours of professional course
work, a staff review is conducted to assess the student's ability to pursue profes-


sional training in the area of communicative habilitation. If the faculty recom-
mends that a student not continue professional training, it may be possible for
him to obtain a bachelor's degree providing he meets the University require-
ments for graduation. However, the student will not be permitted to complete
the clinical practicum courses that would qualify him for professional employ-
ment in the field.

A student who is approved to pursue professional preparation may elect one
of the following courses of action:

1. He may remain in school until he has earned the master's degree and is eligi-
ble for full professional employment. He will thus have completed all academ-
ic, practicum, and internship requirements that qualify him for a full-time

2. He may, at the conclusion of his baccalaureate work, pursue on-the-job train-
ing in one of the cooperating agencies. He would retain student status, con-
tinuing in school part time and working part time under professional sui>er-
vision imtil he is fully qualified. This program takes longer but integrates
valuable professional experience with academic study and often enriches the
classroom instruction.

Dramatic Arts

The dramatic arts undergraduate curriculum is designed to lead to professional
competency in teaching on the secondary level, in acting, directing, or play-
writing, or in technical theatre. And because these programs provide both theory
and skill development, they also prepare the student for graduate course work
and higher education careers.

Students in the dramatic arts curriculum are expected to participate in the
University Theatre program. All productions are cast from open tryouts so that
all students may participate. The University Theatre produces an average of 16
faculty-directed and 67 student-directed productions each year.

The baccalaureate degree is available, with majors in speech and dramatic arts
education, acting, directing, dramatic arts, playwriting, or technical theatre. All
majors in the dramatic arts area, except those in speech and dramatic arts edu-
cation, will complete the following core of courses (ISM hours total):

Physical Education

183 ( i ) Specialty Dance — Theatre

Speech and Dramatic Arts

101 (3) Speech Communication

121 (3) Voice, Diction, and Interpretation

123R (3 ea.) Fundamentals of Acting

460 (2) Theory of Directing

461R (1 ea.) Directing the One- Act Play

565 (3) Theatre History II

Speech and Dramatic Arts Laboratory. Speech and Dramatic Arts Laboratory
is sponsored by the department to provide practical experience and participation
in the speech arts. Registration and attendance are required for many of the
undergraduate classes.

Admission to Major Specialty

Each student selects the professional program (acting, directing, playwriting, sec-
ondary education, or technical theater) of interest to him. An interview is then
held with a faculty member having responsibility for the particular professional
area in which the student is interested. This interview —

1. acquaints the student with the requirements of the program;

2. determines any preferences the student may have regarding assignment to
an adviser;


3. outlines an appropriate program of study.

From time to time each faculty adviser evaluates the progress of students
assigned to him and attempts to assist them if they appear to need help. By the
time each student has completed thirty-five hours of the major requirements, he
arranges with the faculty committee of his professional area to receive a pro-
fessional evaluation review. This review is conducted to assess the student's
(1) level of skill, (2) mastery of academic material, and (3) artistic judgment.
The results of the review will be made known to the student to aid him in de-
termining the remainder of his program and to give him insight into his
mastery of the skills and knowledge relevant to his professional choice.

Course Requirements for a Dramatic Arts Program

A student may elect to earn a baccalaureate degree in dramatic arts without

The area of speech offers a public address major and selected courses for person-
al development in argumentation and debate, communication theory, discussion,
public speaking, rhetoric, and speech criticism.

Course offerings in this area serve not only the specialized needs of depart-
mental majors, but also offer a wide selection of courses to assist students in all
academic areas of the University. Experiences in understanding and applying
principles of effective oral communication are particularly helpful to students in
prelaw, business, communications, youth leadership, and all areas of education.
The greater portion of speech majors include the teaching certification require-
ments in their program.

The BYU Forensic Association, under the direction of the department, offers
an opportunity for all students to participate in competitive speech activities on
both the on-campus and intercollegiate levels. These activities are open to the
general student body, regardless of major, and a list of specific contests can be
found in the description of departments of the College of Fine Arts and Com-
munications. Interested students in all fields of study participate in about thirty
debate trips during the academic year.

Majors in speech will usually plan to teach on the secondary or college
level, or use their professional training in public relations, business, and indus-
trial communications. In addition to the University graduation requirements
and the course requirements listed below, majors in speech will participate in a
junior evaluation of their work. This evaluation must be completed immediately
before registration for the first junior semester (or 65 or more semester hours).
Transfer students above the sophomore rank must complete this evaluation
before registering for a second semester at BYU.

All majors in speech are required to participate in forensic competitive activi-
ties during at least one full semester. This includes debate and at least one indi-
vidual event such as oratory, extemporaneous speaking, or interpretation. Credit
in the 112 or 312 series will meet this requirement.
