The goal of the Theatre Directing minor is to provide students with a concentrated introduction to the theories, skills, and practice of directing for the theatre.
As a result of successfully completing program requirements, students should be able to:
understand theatre directing as a multifaceted discipline involving the processes of acting, design, and technology;
demonstrate the organization skills required of the theatre directing process through project management; and
understand dramatic structure as a key element of the theatre directing process.
In the minor’s capstone course, students will have the opportunity to coordinate all of these elements through the production of a one-act play.
This minor aims to 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.
