Course Categories

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.

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.
