Theater Arts Minor




The Minor in Theater Arts is designed to give students the opportunity to engage in advanced study of Theater Arts and to experiment broadly in the making of theater. The flexibility of the minor allows students either to explore several theatrical disciplines such as playwriting, acting, directing, or design or to concentrate more deeply in one. MIT's registrar maintains the official requirements for the Minor on their website. Students choose one course from a core group of foundational classes, followed by another five elective courses selected in consultation with the minor advisor to complete a minimum of 69 units within Theater Arts.
