The Minor in Theatre offers students a comprehensive overview of the study of theatre, including both academic (history and criticism) and production (acting, design and technology) courses. The purpose is to expose undergraduate students to the field by reinforcing the integrated nature of theatre as a scholarly and aesthetic pursuit. Students are required to take a core of required courses, totaling ten hours. They then take a minimum of ten hours of electives in two general areas (History/Criticism and Production/Performance) with at least one course from each area.
