CONFIRMING THE MINOR

Students can confirm their intention to minor in Theater & Performance Studies after enrolling in one course in the Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies.

Things to know about your minor:

  • All courses in the minor must be taken for a letter-grade.
  • You must keep a GPA of 2.0 or better in the upper division minor units.
  • A course with the identical course number may only be counted twice toward the minor, and only 2 courses may be repeated in this way.
  • See the Undergraduate Handbook for further information.

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT TRANSFER CREDIT

  • The Theater & Performance Studies Minor requires five upper division courses; at least three of these courses must be taken in the Department.
  • A transferred course from another college or another department must be advisor-approved. Transfer students can determine transfer-ability of coursework into the minor by bringing a copy of previous transcripts/course descriptions to Michael Mansfield for evaluation.
  • Equivalent courses to Theater 10 transfer into the minor from other institutions.
  • Except for Theater 10, it is rare that a course from a Junior College will transfer into the minor because equivalent coursework is seldom found.
  • Since your minor will be from the Department of Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies, it is likely you will do most of your minor coursework here.
