General Requirements For the Theatre Major

High School graduates and community college transfer students who want to major in theatre should possess high verbal aptitude and effective skills in reading and writing. Moreover, theatre majors should possess an attitude of teamwork, strong self-discipline, and a commitment to hard work for long hours. Previous course work and participation in music, dance, acting, singing, and back stage production is highly desirable, but not mandatory.

Students wishing to major in theatre should declare this major early in their university career. Entering freshman or transfer students should contact the Theatre Program director for the assignment of an academic adviser immediately upon arrival at the campus.

Grade Requirements For Graduation

Theatre majors must earn a minimum grade of 2.5 in each course counted in the major. Failure to earn at least a 2.5 in any course in the major will necessitate repeating the course. If the course is a prerequisite for advanced course work, it must be repeated successfully before advance work may be taken.

Theatre Majors must earn a final cumulative GPA of 3.00 for graduation.
