Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of the arts and how the arts often integrate into and enhance students’ study in other disciplines such as criminal justice, communication, business and psychology, the Visual and Performing Arts Department offers minors in its three disciplines of Art, Music, and Theatre. A minor in the arts allows students to further explore and develop their affinity for the arts and their artistic talents.
As a theatre minor, students complete courses covering an overview of theatre, acting and technical skills. Two additional courses are required in a student’s chosen area of interest. Students also participate in at least one stage production offering an opportunity to apply the learned skills in a fully realized stage production.
