The theatre minor is designed to be an enhancement to a major area of study and/or personal enrichment. The minor should be particularly attractive to students in the humanities (English), communication (Film, Journalism), and the arts (Music, Architecture). The minor may also be attractive to students who need to demonstrate a wide range of interests.
The theatre minor requirements total 18 hours. Theatre 100, a required course in the minor, is an experiential survey of all aspects of the living theatre, as presented by a resident company of theatre artists. Theatre 410, an advanced script analysis course, is also required. Students choose two courses from the approved list of theatre history courses. These supporting courses place the literature and aesthetic in historical, social, and political perspective. Students elect 6 theatre credits as additional courses. They typically schedule Theatre 102, acting for the non-major, and an introductory design or additional theatre history class.
A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor.
