Theatre Minor

Return to: 10300 School of Film, Media & Theatre 

Theatre is both a respected art form whose roots reach back 4,000 years and a field of academic study whose practitioners have made major contributions to our understandings of art, culture, the social sciences, political activism, multicultural awareness, and gender diversity. The minor in theatre can prepare students to incorporate theatre studies and production within a wide variety of career paths in such fields as education, filmmaking, journalism, literary studies, and community service. In addition, Georgia State’s theatre minors have gone on to advanced studies in theatre on the graduate level and professional careers as actors, directors, writers, designers, and technicians.

Minor Requirements

Students who wish to minor in Theatre must take 15-18 hours in Theatre, including at least nine semester hours at the 3000 level or above. Theatre minors are held to the same course prerequisite requirements as majors. Students taking more than 15 hours of courses in the field may count the additional hours toward their electives. A grade of C- or higher is required in all courses counting toward the minor.
