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.

As a result of successfully completing program requirements, students should be able to:

  • understand Directing as a multifaceted discipline involving the processes of acting, design, and technology;
  • demonstrate the organization skills required of the directing process through project management; and
  • understand 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.
