Theater Minor

College of Arts and Sciences

For information contact John J. Curtis, DMA

The theatre minor is designed for students interested in drama and performance, and for those students who would benefit, in an increasingly media-oriented society, from the acquisition of technical and performance skills associated with theatre. The minor provides a double focus:

  1. Development of writing and analytical skills with regard to dramatic literature and theatre history
  2. Practical experience with play production, including technical skills, performance, and playwriting.
