Theatre Minor

The theatre minor offers students an opportunity to experience the tradition and experience of the theatre. It serves as an excellent complement to many majors, including English, communication studies, psychology, and humanities. This minor allows students to branch out from their subject of study and not only learn the tradition and techniques of the theatre, but also be better equipped to participate confidently in one or more of the co-curricular and extra-curricular experiences that will be generated by the theatre program. This minor can be combined with any major and minor except the theatre major.
