Theatre and Dance Core Courses (31 hours)

In order for our Department to prepare students for professional, community, or academic theatres a significant section of their studies has been selected to provide a common ground for all potential theatre artists. The Core Courses expand the student’s creative powers and deepen the commitment and appreciation of the art of theatre. These classes were chosen to enable each student to learn and practice areas of theatre in which they are not familiar, outside of their chosen area of specialization. Insight and appreciation of the art and craft of the other areas of specialization build a common vocabulary for all students necessary for students of theatre and dance. The shared courses that are required of all BFA students are:

• THEA 1561—Introduction to Design (3)

• THEA 2501—Stage Movement (3)

• THEA 2511—Intro to Technical Production (3)

• THEA 2531—Performance Fundamentals (3)

• THEA 3412—Directing Experiments (3)

• THEA 3600—Production Laboratories (4)
