Theatre Design and Stagecraft Minor and Immersion
As part of your bachelor’s degree requirements, you’ll enhance your core studies by completing an immersion (a concentration of three courses in your particular area). You can also complement your major, develop another area of professional expertise, or pursue a personal interest by completing a minor.
A minor can complement an undergraduate student’s major, help them develop another area of professional expertise, or enable them to pursue an area of personal interest. Completion of a minor is formally designated on the baccalaureate transcript, which serves to highlight this accomplishment to employers and graduate schools.

Coursework explores the artistic, historical, and cultural elements of theatre design. Theoretical knowledge is balanced with experiential learning, obtained through the completion of required practicum experiences that involve participation in department productions. The Theatre Design and Stagecraft minor is open to all hearing and deaf/hard of hearing students.
about the Theatre Arts Minor
Undergraduate students must complete an immersion—a concentration of three courses in a particular area. These courses support deeper learning within a focus area and are used to meet RIT’s general education requirements. In many cases, an immersion can lead to a minor with the addition of two courses. However, not all minors have a corresponding immersion, and vice versa.
