Quarter Curriculum - For Reference Only

Effective fall 2013, RIT will convert its academic calendar from quarters to semesters. The following content has been made available as reference only. Currently matriculated students who began their academic programs in quarters should consult their academic adviser for guidance and course selection.

The theater arts minor offers students a focused study of the theatrical and dramatic arts, combining courses in dramatic and theatrical history, criticism, and theory with concrete practice through direct production involvement. Students will consult with the fine arts faculty to select courses for the theater arts minor. NOTE: No course taken to satisfy the requirements of this minor may be counted toward any other minor, nor may any course taken to satisfy the requirements of another minor be counted toward the theater arts minor.
