Our program also provides useful skills for those planning to pursue graduate school or professional training or to work in a theatre arts specialization. Drama majors often complete double majors in combination with many other departments and programs.
The drama major consists of eleven course credits and related requirements, as follows:
Review an approved list of courses for each requirement.
We expect each Drama major to gain experience in the creative aspects of drama and/or dance through involvement in the department's production program. Graduation magna cum laude or summa cum laude with a drama major is contingent not only on scholastic achievement, but also on significant participation in productions.
We strongly recommend that students considering a drama major
complete Drama 2, 3 or 4, the crew requirement, and an
introductory-level course in either studio dance/acting or
design/technology by the end of the sophomore year. This will allow
greater flexibility in scheduling coursework and more opportunities
for advanced-level production projects.
Current students, please note: The requirements were modified in 2018. Students in the Class of 2018 & 2019 should use the Concentration Check List (2018/2019). Students in the Class of 2020 and beyond should use Concentration Check List (2020+).
By the time students complete a major in Drama they should be able to:
Minor in Drama

Drama minors also are required to serve on either one run crew (DR 5) or one prep crew (DR 6) for a departmental major production. We also offer a Minor in Dance.
