The musical theatre minor is intended for students of any major interested in studying the intersections of dance, music and theatre. The minor emphasizes the performer as creator by providing a broad foundation through performance-related course work and the study of the art form in context to its historical underpinnings and current trends in musical theatre.
Required for a musical theatre minor: 26-28 hours including THTR 100 (three times); THTR 105, THTR 208, THTR 308, THTR 353, THTR 130 (four times). A music major or minor who wishes to minor in musical theatre may substitute MUS 130, 230, 330 and 430 for THTR 130.
Correlative requirement: One 4-credit elective selected from courses in dance; a choice of MUS 121 and MUS 121L or MUS 115 and MUS 116.
Recommendation: MUS 121 and MUS 121L for students who read music. MUS 115 and MUS 116 for students who do not read music.
