Theatre Arts Degree Requirements
The Bachelor of Arts degree requires 12 semester hours in the same foreign language or demonstration of proficiency at that level of study.
In addition to the departmental degree requirements, students must complete the University Core 39.
Elementary, Early Childhood and Special Education
The theatre education teaching minor provides a solid foundation for theatre teaching in elementary schools.
Students planning to teach theatre in elementary schools (pre-kindergarten through grade six) should seek teacher licensure through a major in early childhood education, elementary education or special education, offered through the Teacher Education Department.
In addition to a teaching minor in theatre, in order to teach theatre in Indiana secondary schools (grades five through 12), a student must have a teaching major in another discipline and a secondary education licensure minor. Students preparing for careers in teaching secondary school in the liberal arts should review the College of Liberal Arts' teacher licensing policy.
