Acting Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Open to all majors including Theatre majors.

For students majoring in Theatre, only two courses or eight credit hours may overlap with the Theatre major.

The Acting minor consists of a concentration of courses designed for those students who wish to strengthen their capacity for performing in plays, operas and musicals as well as for those students interested in this area for purposes of increased self-knowledge, increased poise, and the development of avocation. Theatre majors with specific interests in acting would be well served by this minor as an additional stepping stone to graduate or professional schools.

Program Requirements

Required Courses: 18 Credits

Acting Minor Policies on Student Grades and Performing:

Any student receiving a grade of 1.0 or less for any course offered through the Theatre and Dance Department will be ineligible for casting in any student directed or choreographed production during the semester immediately following the semester in which the failing grade is issued. Eligibility in faculty directed or choreographed productions will be left to the discretion of the directing faculty member and the Department Chair.

Total Credit Hours Required: 18
