Courses in Theatre and Drama


This page was created at 7:02 PM on Tue, Sep 23, 2003.

Fall Academic Term, 2003 (September 2 - December 19)


It is possible for LS&A students to elect a concentration program in Theatre or Music, and these programs are described in the LS&A Bulletin. In addition, Theatre courses and Music courses are frequently elected by LS&A students not concentrating in either Music or Theatre. All courses in Music History/Musicology, Composition, and Music Theory are electable for LS&A credit; some but not all Theatre and Drama courses are available for LS&A credit. Some of these courses can be used in an area distribution plan. LS&A students may elect music PERFORMANCE courses for degree credit, but this credit counts toward the maximum twelve non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward an AB/BS degree or twenty non-LS&A credit hours that can be applied toward a BGS degree.

Courses in Theatre, Music History/Musicology, Composition, Music Theory, and Performing Arts Technology are listed in the Time Schedule under the School of Music.

The following courses count as LS&A courses for LS&A degree credit.

Other assignments will include reading plays, seeing plays, keeping a journal, and meeting regularly with the teacher. At the end of the term we will give staged readings of our work for an audience of friends.
