Theater Arts Minor

Department of Visual and Performing Arts

The Theater Arts minor offers a foundation in the diverse aspects of contemporary theater. The minor focuses on the collaborative approach to theatrical production, allowing students to study both the practical and academic aspects of theater. Students emerge with knowledge of acting, directing, stagecraft, and dramaturgy/theater history. Minors are also encouraged to audition for or to crew departmental productions on our main stage proscenium theater in Dreyfuss and our newly renovated black box, the Barn Theater. Between these spaces, we mount a full season of musicals, classics, and contemporary productions each year, providing opportunities for hands-on application of classroom learning.
