Theatre Arts

The 20-hour minor, which is open to all students, keeps you involved in theatre if you’ve chosen another academic path. You’re engaged in all department productions as an actor, technician, crew member and other roles. In addition, you work closely with a theatre advisor. The minor is often paired with majors in communication, television arts, engineering, education and psychology and other humanities programs.
