Theatre Minor

Students who have majors in other disciplines may take a minor in theatre. The minor consists of 18 semester hours. Courses in theatre are excellent supplements for students planning careers in education, business, psychology, counseling, public relations, communication, law, and other fields that require the ability to work exceptionally well with other people. The theatre minor is an appropriate choice for students in the humanities or fine arts who wish to deepen their understanding of their major fields, as well as science majors who are seeking a breadth of undergraduate experiences. It is also an appropriate choice for students whose program requires a minor, as well as students who are required to have a second program of study under the degree Bachelor of Arts.
