The Theater program at Dartmouth College combines courses in the history, theory, and criticism of theater as a performing art with courses in theater practice. Because of the wide range of interests encompassed in the study of theater, students' programs for the major include a core of foundation courses in the history, literature and criticism of theater plus a combination of courses individually selected to provide training in several aspects of theater practice with special emphasis in one such area. Proposed programs must be supported by a written rationale to be submitted and approved by the Chair of the Department. Production credits are also required for majors and minors.
This rationale and the major cards are then submitted to the Department Chair. Students may concentrate their studies in theater practice in such areas as Acting and Directing; Theatrical Design and Technical Production; Dance; Playwriting; Dramaturgy; History, Theory, and Criticism of Theater.
