Major Resource Kit

Theatre

The Theatre Department now offers three distinct minors all designed to deepen the student’s appreciation of the theatre as an art form within the context of a liberal arts education.  Coursework in all minors provides students with a foundation for theatre appreciation, focusing on the art and craft of theatre making.  The Theatre Department also provides the University with a variety of general education courses in theatre designed to expand appreciation of, and future participation in, theatre. Students interested in performance opportunities should contact one of the amateur theatre groups on campus: E-52, Harrington Theatre Arts, or Khulumani Theatre Troupe.

PERFORMANCE STUDIES MINOR

The Performance Studies Minor is designed for those students who are interested in learning about the performance areas of the theatre – acting, voice, speech, movement, and other related subjects – and who desire the opportunity to explore these areas through the prescribed coursework of a minor.  

THEATRE PRODUCTION MINOR

The Theatre Production Minor is designed for those students who are interested in learning about the production areas of the theatre – scenery, lighting, properties, sound, costuming, stage management, and other related subjects – and who desire the opportunity to explore these areas through the prescribed course work of a minor.

THEATRE STUDIES MINOR

The Theatre Studies Minor is designed for those students who are interested in a variety of areas of the theatre – performance, production, history, directing, and other related subjects – and who desire the opportunity to explore these areas through the prescribed course work of a minor. 

These minors replace the Theatre Production major. To learn more about the minors in Theatre, contact Professor Allan Carlsen, Undergraduate Theatre Advisor and Coordinator, Theatre Department, 413 Academy Street, Newark, DE 19716, or email at acarlsen@udel.edu.
