Within Theatre and Dance, there are five areas of emphasis: acting/directing, performance studies, dramaturgy, stage design, and dance/choreography. History, criticism and theory are integrated with practice in our course offerings and consequently, performance opportunities exist within most of our courses as well as in our mainstage productions. First year students and non-majors often participate in our mainstage productions. There are many routes to a major, depending on general interest and/or emphasis.
All entering students who have previously studied Spanish will receive a letter from the Spanish Department informing them of their placement. Only the students with an AP Spanish language or literature score of 4 or 5 or with no clear placement based on high school transcript will have to take the Placement Test during New Student Orientation (it is not administered at any other time). The department uses the results of the Placement Test to recommend the appropriate starting point for each student.
