Theatre B.A. with Concentration in Design and Technology

Eight-Semester Degree Program

Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Eight-Semester Degree Policy in the Academic Regulations chapter for University requirements of the program. Core requirement hours may vary by individual, based on placement and previous credit granted. Once all core requirements are met, students may substitute a three-hour (or more) general elective in place of a core area.

All theatre majors are required to take an additional two hours of THTR 3001 Production Practicum, one hour to be taken each academic year. Consult Theatre Adviser for more information on these credits.
