The theatre art major and minor provide students with a broad-based theatre education. This sets a foundation from which they can specialize in performance, design or history/literature.
The theatre art major is intended for students who want to have a life in the theatre: future theatre professionals, those planning graduate study, and students with a serious avocational interest in the theatre. The theatre art minor is intended for those who wish to be more thoughtful and informed about theatre in their lives. Many students combine a theatre art major or minor with art, business, communication studies, music or other programs.
