Theatre Arts

The top 5 things to consider when planning a major in Theatre Arts

  1. The Theatre Experience (TH1101) is the first course in the major and offered only in fall semester. Students planning a Theater major or minor should ideally take this course in their first semester.
  2. Theatre 1101 includes a 2 hour per week practicum scheduled M-Th, 2:00 pm -5:00 pm. This gives students practical experience in various aspects of theatre production.
  3. Majors are required to participate in 6 productions, 4 of which must be faculty directed.
  4. 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.
  5. At least one para-programmatic experience such as an internship, study abroad, or a tour to London or New York City is required.
