Fast Facts: Theatre Minor

  • A distinguished program that focuses on academic productions
  • Students are exposed to some of the greatest writers and literatures while taking part in very hands-on learning
  • Gives students an understanding of dramatic literature and theatre history, while teaching invaluable speaking, listening, and observation skills
  • Students gain competence in performance and technical theatre, helping with all aspects of productions, from sets and costumes, to the box office, to performance
  • Students have the opportunity to participate in the London Theatre and Literature study abroad program.

Program requirements

Minor: 20 credits (which includes work on four productions and at least one technical theater practicum)

Internship opportunities

Work-study and internship/practicum credits are available at the St. Scholastica Theatre. Duluth is home to a thriving performing arts community including the Duluth Playhouse, Teatro Zuccone, Minnesota Ballet and the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, so internship opportunities could be available off campus.

  • "I came into the theatre without knowing anyone on campus and with no acting experience. I left two years later having acted, assistant-directed, and having built sets with fantastic friends. I even met my fiancé. Come for the theater, stay for the people."
