Drama

Academic Requirements

See the full listing of drama courses in the Course Catalog.

A total of ten courses are required for the major in drama. Each student must complete DRA 211, 221, and 231. It is suggested that these courses be completed by the end of the sophomore year. Of the seven remaining courses, at least four must be elected from those courses that form the history/theory component of the curriculum (courses listed in the catalog with a “Theater and Drama” prefix, as well as selected Special Topics courses). In the spring of the junior year all majors are required to take Junior Seminar. In addition to the course requirements, majors are expected to take an active role in the department by participating in the following co-curricular activities in each semester: two work calls per faculty show, all faculty strikes, one SCE work call, two SCE strikes, and three ushering shifts. (To capture these co-curricular responsibilities, all majors will be enrolled up to four times in DRA 400.)

The minor program in drama shall consist of a minimum of seven courses plus participation in an approved capacity in co-curricular productions during the student’s junior and senior years. The student will be required to take DRA 211, 221, 231 (or 331) plus four additional courses, two of which must be from the following: DRA 201, 202, 203, 304, 305, 306, 307.
