The Theater program at Dartmouth College combines courses in the study of theater as a performing art with courses in theater practice. Due to the wide range of interests encompassed by 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. Students may concentrate their studies in such areas as acting and directing; dance; theatrical design; technical production; stage management; playwriting; dramaturgy; or theater history, theory, and criticism. Proposed programs for the major, modified major, or minor must be supported by a written rationale that is submitted to and approved by the Department Chair. For more details on course and production credit requirements for the major, modified major, and minor, please refer to the Theater section of the online ORC here or explore the above links.
