Theater Minor

Minimum of 19 semester course credits

Under the auspices of the Mills Dance Department, students are able to design their own minor in theater studies. After fulfilling the requirements, students choose electives to create a minor with an emphasis on drama (based on seminars courses) or on physical theater (based on practicum/performance classes).
