Theatre Minors

The theatre minor is designed to acquaint a person interested in pursuing theatre on a limited scale with the basic tools for mounting a production. It also accommodates those who wish to begin a specialization in the acting-directing or the design emphasis. Special advisement for students who are interested in theatre may be obtained from the department chair. Detailed information is available from the departmental office.
