The top 4 things to consider when planning a major in theatre arts
- Theatre Experience (TH1101) is the first course in the major and offered only in fall semester. Students planning a theatre major or minor should ideally take this course in their first semester. This course includes a 2 hour per week practicum (hours are available Monday-Thursday, 2-5p.m.) that gives students practical experience in various aspects of theatre production.
- Majors are required to participate in six productions, four of which must be faculty-directed.
- A portfolio of student work, including achievements in theatre production, is formally presented in the 3rd year and students are encouraged to attend regularly scheduled major meetings.
- All theatre majors are required to complete a capstone project in an area of interest such as acting, design, stage management, directing or dramaturgy.
