Undergraduate Directing Concentration
The Directing Concentration prepares students to enter graduate directing programs or pursue professional careers in theater, television and film. The coursework provides the highest caliber of training possible within the context of a liberal arts education, so students can thrive either in a graduate conservatory program or in the profession. Through intensive and varied classes combined with experiential work in minimalist to full-scale productions, students develop the skills needed for creative communication and artistic leadership, tools they will need to pursue their professional goals.
- In order for the student to progress to the next level of study, prerequisites for admission to some classes are required.
- The Arts Exploratory Concentration for directors, 9 s.h. in the Foundation courses, must be three courses in one of the following areas: Music, Dance, Visual Art, or a behavioral science such as Psychology or Anthropology.
