Musical Theatre Minor

The Musical Theatre Minor is an interdisciplinary minor that brings together courses involving singing, dancing, and stage performance to provide a unique opportunity for students interested in music and theatre to concentrate on both areas, while earning one minor. These are students who, due to constraints of time and credit hours, must currently choose between either a Music or a Theatre Minor.
