The PDF link below shows a variety of options in the various course categories of the requirements for the major. This is just a sampling. Bear in mind that course offerings change, and not all courses are offered every year.

ADVANCED STUDIO PRE-REQUISITES
Courses in The Arts of Theater and Dance are grouped into roughly three tiers: (1) The Core Courses and other courses without pre-requisites, (2) courses in specific disciplines, and (3) advanced studio courses.
There are no set sequences. Many majors complete two advance studio courses even though only one is required. Pre-requisites for some advanced studios are specific, others more open. The PDF link below provides a rough guide to minimal pre-requisites for advanced studio courses, and the pre-requisites, in turn, for those pre-requisites (if any).
When considering possible senior projects, additional related courses may be advised. Please check individual course descriptions or speak to a faculty member when in doubt. We encourage all majors to explore different areas in addition to courses that lead only minimally to specific advanced studio courses.
