The Theatre Arts track combines the study of dramatic literature, theatre history, performance theory, and studio work in the various theatre arts. All concentrators in Theatre Arts will gain practical experience through the study of acting and directing as well as in the technical production of plays, preparing students in the practical study of a cross-section of the vital aspects of theatre craft. The myriad of department opportunities in Acting, Directing, Dance, and Design/Tech serve to enrich the Theatre Arts track in practical form.
Course Requirements: Ten (10) required courses, four (4) of which must be in theatre history and dramatic and theatrical theory that forms a backbone for further study in these areas. Course offerings are drawn from throughout the University and interdisciplinary work is stressed. For more information, please see the Undergraduate Handbook.
Students wishing to enroll as concentrators in the Theatre Arts track should contact the Theatre Arts concentration advisor Professor Kym Moore in order to discuss options that will best serve their interests.
