PROFESSOR DAN CARTER, Director, School of Theatre
This program offers the student interested in theatre a general background in the various areas of theatre. A broad liberal education is provided and complemented with advanced courses to best serve student interests, talents, and career objectives.
Though a strong emphasis is given to the general areas of production and performance, each student may elect to concentrate in an area of special interest such as acting, design, or dramatic literature. Students are also encouraged to explore the related areas of art, music, dance, film, television, and literature. All Theatre majors are expected to participate in a technical capacity in one theatre production for each of six semesters. The distribution of production credits must include 6 credits of THEA 160(3), THEA 170(3), THEA 180(3), and 4 credits from THEA 289(1) (maximum of 2 credits) and THEA 489(1).
