Theatre

The Theatre Program offers a minor as well as a Theatre Arts interdisciplinary major, designed by the student and a theatre faculty advisor.

As part of the Communication Arts Department, the Theatre Program encourages explorations of connections with Art and Communication and Rhetorical Studies as well as English. If you are interested in this option, please see the Individualized Studies Major and contact Dr. Nancy Taylor Porter.

The minor consists of 24 hours of coursework (6 courses) and 3 productions (TH 150/151):

  • TH 190, TH 222 or TH 231 (2 courses)
  • TH 485
  • 12 hours of electives (3 courses), 8 of which must be at the 300-level or above, including one of the tech theatre classes (361, 362, 363). Other options include upper-level acting classes (351, 352, 353) or Scriptwriting (TH 290).
  • 3 productions (at least one onstage—which can include the semester in an improv troupe—and one backstage)
