The minor in theatre is an exciting 21 credit course of study designed for those seeking a wide array of experiences within the theatre arts. The minor is an open enrollment program with no audition or interview requirements. Any student with the available time and desire to explore what theatre has to offer is welcome to enroll. Theatre minors are encouraged to become active participants in departmental and mainstage activities. On and off-stage opportunities are available in our mainstage season as well as with our student-run theatre company, Pipe Dreams Studio Theatre.
