To complete the Combined Major in Theatre and Dance, three 1-credit practicum credits must be earned during the student’s four years and be distributed among several areas, to maximize skills development and experience in: performance (acting, dancing), craft (costume, lighting, sound, scenic, props), management (stage management, production management, running crew) and creative development (choreography, assistant directing, dramaturgy, design). These practicum credits are academic credits, graded, and earned in production settings where there are syllabi, learning contracts and grading rubrics.
