As a Theatre Arts and Music minor, you’ll take both theater and music courses to complete your requirements. The only requirement is that three credits must be taken in a performance-based class such as Acting or Voice Workshop; the rest are up to you! You can take classes like Directing, Opera in New York, Beatles/Music of the 60s, Theater for School, and more.
Theatre Arts and Music minors often enjoy getting involved in performance-based extracurricular activities as well, such as our improv club or Knight Notes a capella group.
The transferable skills offered by studying Theatre Arts and Music are beneficial for any field. Theatre Arts and Music students are used to working under tight deadlines, have excellent oral communication and memory skills, and know how to take direction and work collaboratively with others — skills that any employer will appreciate.
The minor also helps to prepare students who are interested in theatre and music-based careers such as playwriting, acting, singing, performance, and more.
