Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

With a major in Theatre, students will learn how to write and analyze texts and documents, solve problems quickly and effectively, speak energetically and dramatically to audiences of all kinds and sizes, and contribute significantly to any group or team. Theatre majors offer to prospective employers the valuable skills of creativity, imagination, independence of thought and action, patience, self-discipline, flexibility, initiative, teamwork, and dedication. Theatre majors’ energy, enthusiasm, strong work ethic, self confidence, versatility, responsibility, and commitment identify them as well-rounded liberal arts graduates who can speak articulately, give confident presentations, and thrive under pressure.

Requirements for Graduation:

To be eligible for graduation, students majoring in Theatre must complete a minimum of 120 credits, achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.0, satisfy the College’s residency requirements, and complete the General Education Requirements of the College. A minimum grade of 2.0 is required for First Year Seminar and all courses taken as part of Foundations. Courses used to complete General Education Requirements may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.

The General Education Requirements of the college require students to successfully complete First Year Seminar, Foundations, Disciplinary Perspectives, and a Constellation. Students who enter the college with 30 credit hours completed will not take a First Year Seminar course and therefore must take an additional 3 credits for graduation. Transfer students that are awarded 60 or more credits upon acceptance to York College will not be required to complete a Constellation.
