The Drama minor easily fits into many degree plans. Many majors allow enough hours to pursue a Drama minor that not only complements but can also enhances the discipline.
The Department exposes students to methodology that theatre can bring to the educational process through our course work, theatre production, community outreach, and professional development.
We offer two concentrations within the Drama minor, in Performance or Technical Theatre.
Our academic offerings encompass a foundational approach to theatre that invite students to explore more specialized topics and applications. The emphasis is on practice, production, and performance. Each of these areas allow for the pursuit of historical and contemporary trends while perfecting student skills and knowledge.
