Master of Arts (M.A.)
The purpose of this Action Thesis is to research, design and implement an ancillary drama program for the proposed Education Center of Monterey Peninsula College at the former Fort Ord. The author hopes that research will uncover the District's expectations of the new campus and its programs, areas of current programs that are open to improvement by a secondary program and ways of including methods of teaching that foster collaboration both within the art form and with the community. The final product should be a program design that draws students and source material from the underserved local communities, teaches basic skills and collaborative techniques, feeds interested students to programs at the MPC Main Campus as well as California State University, Monterey Bay and opens up new and different opportunities for current MPC and CSUMB students.
