Comedy Writing and Performance Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Programs

The Minor in Comedy Writing and Performance is an 18-credit curriculum exploring comedy alongside an additional field of study.  While a Comedy Major examines comedy across different media platforms, a Comedy Minor has the opportunity to explore how comedy functions in conjunction with their primary field. This minor provides students who are specifically interested in a particular medium with opportunities to bolster that study with a complementary skillset in comedy. 

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

  • collaborate creatively within a broadly diverse ensemble of writer/performers;
  • generate original comedic material using a variety of methods;
  • conduct and apply research into historic comic styles and archetypes;
  • produce comic material across a variety of media and for diverse audiences; and
  • create comic material for a diverse audience across a variety of media, and revise through collaborative feedback.
