Theatre Directing Minor


The goal of the minor in Directing is to provide students with a concentrated introduction to the theories, skills, and practice of directing for the theater.

On completion of the minor students will have practical experience of:

  • Directing as a multifaceted discipline involving an understanding of the processes of acting, design, and technology.
  • The organization of the directing process through project management.
  • Comprehension of dramatic structure as a key element of the directing process.

In the minor’s capstone course, students will coordinate all of these elements through the production of a one-act play.

This minor will be of interest to students who wish to develop an understanding of the skills necessary to conceptualize, organize, and facilitate the preparation of scripted material for performance.
