Theatre Studies Minor

The theatre studies minor offers students who have chosen to major in another discipline the opportunity to explore their interest in theatre. With its unique focus on analysis, creativity and organization, the minor develops skills that are valuable in any endeavor.  Encompassing six courses in total, the curriculum provides a cultural and historical understanding of the art form and allows students to make discoveries about their individual interests and talents. Within the context of a liberal arts education, the minor engages students of all levels – from beginner to those with experience – in a broad range of coursework that embraces acting, musical theatre performance, directing and an introduction to stage and lighting design. Additionally, production and performance opportunities are available to all students during the academic year through the SJU Theatre Company.
