For students interested in an intense liberal arts education, the Bachelor of Arts
in Theatre Arts offers broad exposure to the various elements of theatre arts. This
degree program prepares students for further study at the graduate level or for careers
in professional theatre, secondary education, or any field that builds on the skills
and discipline of the performing arts.
The course sequence on the right includes general minor classes for subject areas
in which students can complete classes in any order at any time. Please be aware that
the minor in Education - Leading to Texas Teacher Certification - follows a much different
pattern. To minor in Education, students must meet specific GPA requirements, testing
standards, and be admitted to the Teacher Education Program (TEP) through the College
of Education. Application to the TEP typically does not occur until the student reaches
approximately 70-75 credit hours. Teacher Certification will most likely add one full
year to a student's program due to the one year student teaching requirement.
