The Minor in Theatre provides a brief yet comprehensive introduction to the study and practice of theatre. Through an approach that combines theoretical and studio courses, students receive a broad orientation to multiple aspects of theatre. Acting, theatre history, design, production, and theatrical literature courses offer a diverse range of experiences and encourage various modes of learning. Students gain exposure to theatre as it has emerged in multiple cultural and historical contexts and develop a broad understanding of the meaning of theatre in society. The Minor stresses the importance of theatre as a social art and emphasizes its transformative historical role in society.
