Theatre Minor

A minor in theatre consists of four non-practicum theatre courses (16 credits), plus eight credits of practicum. One of the non-practica courses (beginning with the prefix THEA) must be chosen from the following:


  • THEA 203. Technical Production and THEP 213 or 214 or 215 or 216. Technical Production Lab (does not count toward Practica below)
  • or THEA 304. History of the Theatre
  • or THEA 306. Introduction to World Drama
  • or THEA 309. Performance and Modern Culture

The other three non-practica courses may be chosen from any non-practicum theatre courses (beginning with the prefix THEA) for which the student is eligible, except THEA 391 and THEA 491.


To satisfy the practicum requirement, the student must earn four credits of technical practica. The remaining four credits of practica may be satisfied by earning 4 credits of performance practica or an additional four credits of technical practica, or any combination of technical and performance practica, THEP 213, 214, 215 and 216 are not acceptable for this section.

The Pass/Fail grading option is not acceptable for courses taken to satisfy the six-course theatre minor.

The Theater Department requires that 12 credits be taken in residence. Of those, 4 credits of technical practica must be taken in residence to receive a theatre minor.

Performance practica are numbered THEP 260-266, THEP 360-366 and THEP 460-466.

Technical practica are numbered THEP 270-276, 370-376 and 470-476.
