Undergraduate Minor

Theatre Undergraduate Minor Requirements

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 204. History of the Theatre

  • or THEA 306. World Dramatic Literature

  • or THEA 309. Performance and Modern Culture


To satisfy the Minor practicum requirement, the student must earn 8 credits of practica: four credits of technical practica and four credits of technical or performance practica.

The 2nd 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.

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

NOTE: 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.

Note: 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.
