Theatre Minor

By focusing on three broad areas—history and theory, performance, and production—the Minor in Theatre provides students with an overview of the profession and the opportunity to complete elective courses in areas where they have the greatest interest, such as acting, directing, stage design, voice, stage movement, playwriting, and puppetry. Performance opportunities may also be available for students pursuing the Theatre Minor.
