Theatre majors are required to take three credits of theatre practicum and are encouraged to take it for elective credits 3 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.
