Sample BA Degree in Theatre

This is an example of what a BA student seeking a Theatre Major with a Film Minor might take to complete their degree. These are not the classes every student must take, nor are the designators attached to certain courses an indication that those courses will actually carry that designator when the new core is applied. Students must take one (E), one (D) and one (A), as well as 3 (C) courses.
