As of Fall 2017, the Theatre Education Minor has suspended admission. This means that unless you have been accepted into this program prior to Fall 2017, you will not be able to earn the minor. The following information is provided solely for the benefit of students accepted into the program prior to Fall 2017.
The Theatre Department offers a teaching minor leading to a DPI #325 license.This program is open either as an “add-on” license for students pursuing, and accepted into, an education or teaching major in an appropriately related field (e.g., English, Social Studies, MCEA) or teachers who already have a State of Wisconsin teaching license in one of the subjects listed above.
Admission requirements for a Theatre Education minor are the same as those of a major (see Theatre Education admission requirements): Students accepted into the program will be expected to participate in an interview, pass the Praxis I and II Tests prior to admission to the program, their fieldwork, and student teaching (THEATRE 484, THEATRE 485, and THEATRE 486). Additionally, students evaluated as lacking in theatre content information, skills, or knowledge will be required to take more than the minimum 21 credits listed here; each individual student's appropriateness, requirements, and their course(s) of study will be determined by the Theatre Education Program Director.Minimum Required Courses for Theatre Education Minor.
