About This Degree

The goals of the Theatre Minor are to provide students with basic training in theatre in the areas of stage performance, dramatic literature and stage technology. Students acquire skills and experience in stage acting; gain a working knowledge of a broad spectrum of dramatic literature and theatre practices; and acquire basic skills in stage design and construction, lighting, costuming and make-up. Full-stage productions are given each semester. Students in the Theatre minor program should expect to spend a minimum of eighty hours in production participation, either onstage or backstage, over a minimum of two major Department productions.
