Theater (Minor)

About the Program

Often a student enrolled in a major other than theater has great enthusiasm and talent for theater arts. In that case, a minor in theater is an excellent way to augment your education and to document your these aptitudes. Graduate schools and employers will see that you have a talent for theater arts, as well as experience in such areas as collaborative problem solving and project management. The minor requires 19 credits, as described below.
