Theatre and drama majors with a primary interest in acting may audition for the Acting Specialist option. This is a highly structured program of study, best begun as early as possible in the student's career. Specific courses are required in acting, voice, movement, directing, technical production, and dramatic literature and theatre history. Admission is by audition only; auditions are held at the midpoint of each spring semester prior to enrollment for fall classes. Students must be enrolled in or have successfully completed THEATRE 250 Fundamentals of Acting before admission to the program. Students who qualify for the Acting Specialist option are expected to audition for University Theatre productions.
The option coursework listed here is one component of the B.S. Theatre and Drama degree requirements.
