Proposal Changes:

History Information:

Provisional approval 3/5/04 The proposed changes to 3201 and 3202 actually represent a change in name and structure only. Presently, the courses are combined acting/directing courses, formatted to period styles (3201) and realism and alternatives (3202). The proposed format would include both realism and period/contemporary styles, but would allow acting and directing individual focus. While these two creative activities are mutually dependent, the discipline feels the effectiveness of instruction is lessened when students are expected to concentrate on both activities simultaneously.
