* No more than 5 credits in theatre practicum may be applied to the minor. The minor program requires the approval of a member of the theatre faculty in advance of formally declaring the minor, preferably no later than the first semester of the junior year.
Note: Production participation requirement--Theatre, being a collaborative art, is dependent on the participation of people in all aspects of theatrical production: acting, designing, crew work, box-office, publicity, directing, etc. For this reason, students majoring or minoring in theatre are expected to participate actively and continuously in the production activities of the theatre department throughout their academic career at UAF. Theatre majors are required to take three credits of theatre practicum and are encouraged to take it for elective credits as well. Theatre majors and minors are expected to attend all theatre department "Town Meetings" and to talk regularly with a theatre department faculty member (an advisor) regarding their participation so that they may plan a working course of action to fulfill this requirement.

See Film Studies.
