Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

The minor in theatre arts consists of 24 units of theatre arts courses.  The minor provides a way for students who are not pursuing a major in the department to meaningfully study Theatre Arts and Dance and become significantly involved with the life of the department and with production work.  Students may choose to focus on acting, dance, technical theatre, or theatre studies. Six of the elective units must be upper division. Students contemplating a minor in theatre arts should consult the department’s full-time faculty at the earliest possible date for approval and advising.  Students particularly interested in musical theater may choose to pursue a Performance major in Voice in the Department of Music.
