Theatrical Design, Minor

This minor is intended for students with an interest in design as the collaborative art of transforming ideas into images that support live performance; design as an expression of human experience; design as a method of inquiry and problem solving. It encourages interdisciplinary learning by connecting the study of theatre with studio art, visual communication, design thinking, spatial design, and visual storytelling.

The theatrical design minor combines courses from the Department of Theatre with additional choices from the Department of Art + Design, the Department of Music, and the Department of Architecture.
