Acting Minor


The goal of the minor in Acting is to provide students with a concentrated introduction to the skills and theories required of the craft and practice of acting. Students will develop skills in the craft of vocal production, physical adaptability and expressiveness, textual analysis of dramatic literature, and an understanding of the basics of theatrical production. In conjunction with training in craft skills, students will develop their talents as performers through the spontaneity of live performance.

  • Demonstrate a foundational understanding of the skills necessary for the craft and practice of acting.
  • Demonstrate progress in developing the necessary vocal and physical skills for performance.
  • Demonstrate the ability to analyze a text for performance.

This minor will be of interest to students who are training for careers with close tie-ins to the performing arts or in which public performance will be required in the fulfillment of their duties.
