Declaring a TDPS Major or Minor


Once you are admitted to UC Berkeley, you do not have to complete an additional application process to pursue a major or minor in Theater, Dance, and Performance Studies. To declare:

  1. Review the requirements for the major or minor in Dance and Performance Studies or Theater and Performance Studies.
  2. Enroll in at least one TDPS course before declaring your intended minor, or complete two required lower-division courses (one practice course, one performance studies course) before declaring your intended major.
  3. Schedule an appointment with our undergraduate advisor when you are ready to declare.

Note: Although an audition or interview is not required to declare a major or minor, there are requirements for enrollment in certain courses. Please see our class audition information.
