Professor Shawn Dougherty
Professor of Drama
Professor Shawn Dougherty is passionate about the theatre and believes the fine arts have an important role to play in the New Evangelization.
“Sometimes the fine arts are seen as a relativist area, but that’s not the case. There is real truth in beauty. And although much of the culture has decided that truth doesn’t exist, they still respond to beauty. Helping them see the true in the beautiful through the fine arts may be the way we turn this culture around.”
Ultimately Dougherty sees his job as “awakening students to the pursuit of truth.” “I want my students to see that every choice they make will have a tremendous impact on their lives, and seeing truth in all things and choosing it is critical. I try to not just educate them for a job, but rather educate them about how to live life.”
