Download the Theatre SCE Guidelines

A student may complete the Theatre SCE in one of several ways:

  • a traditional research thesis in the areas of theatrical criticism, theory, or history;
  • a playwriting thesis in which the student writes and workshops a full-length play, which is then presented in a rehearsed reading;
  • a production thesis in which the student serves as dramaturg, stage manager, designer, performer, playwright, or director of a departmental production.

Full details for all SCE options and for the proposal process—including timelines, expectations, and written requirements—are available here:
