In addition to the College’s general requirements for an Associate’s Degree a student may concentrate or minor in theatre; an individualized B.A. is also an option. Theatre at Pine Minor provides students with the ability to study the theatre arts in a range of contexts. Courses in acting, directing, design, production, management, dramatic literature, and history impart appreciation and training. Major fall and spring productions offer opportunities for acting, directing, stage management, design, and production experience. Students receive course credit for their participation. Internships and directed studies are available as well. In addition, courses in dramatic literature (EN 216, EN 217, EN 228) and dance (DA 101–2, DA 111–112, DA 225–6, DA 260, DA 280-1), along with ED/MU 210 Music and Movement for Children, and private instruction in voice are strongly recommended. Other relevant courses are offered through cross-registration at Boston College.
