The B.A. program also provides an opportunity to major in more than one discipline. Second majors such as English, history, creative writing, journalism, music, criminal justice administration, prelaw and sociology have been successful choices.
One of the goals of the B.A. in theater is the preparation of the most gifted students for successful admission to graduate schools or other advanced training in theater or related areas. However, even if you do not wish to extend your training beyond the baccalaureate level, the B.A. in theater addresses both the quality and the diversity of your training.
In addition to general education and arts and sciences area requirements, the theater major includes:
THAR 101 Intro and Orientation to the Theater as a Profession 1 THAR 111 Acting Improvisation 2 or THAR 113 Acting Fundamentals I(*) 4 THAR 130 Design Prin. for the Stage 3 THAR 131 Practical Elements of Stagecraft 3 THAR 171 Play Analysis 3 THAR 172 Elements of Performance 3 THAR 150 Playwiting 4 or THAR 420 Directing 5 quarters of practicum (10 hours) distributed over more than one area (you will work with your advisor to ensure correct distribution) 12 quarter hours from the following: THAR 270 Theater History I 4 THAR 271 Theater History II 4 THAR 272 Theater History III 4 THAR 470 Tragedy 4 THAR 471 Comedy 4 THAR 472 Forms of Drama 4 THAR 473 Seminar in Theater History and Drama 4 THAR 477 Amer. Theater and Drama 4 THAR 479 Independent Studies in Theater Hist. and Crit. 1-6*THAR 113 is preferred. No credit for 113 if you have credit for 110.
The balance of the degree program will consist of 30 credit hours at the 200 level or above in the School of Theater. No more than 24 credit hours may count toward the degree in one (narrow) area of interest, e.g., acting, lighting, publicity, playwriting, etc. No more than 8 hours of practicum (beyond the core requirement) may count toward the degree.
You must submit a plan for the distribution of the 30 credits for consultation and approval by your advisor as a condition of your final acceptance into the major program. While sufficient flexibility for change of direction and focus must be provided throughout your residence, there must be and agreed-upon understanding of the purpose of the program of study and the plan for accomplishing that purpose.
The total requirement for a B.A. in theater is 70 credit hours. Note: No more than 72 credits in THAR courses are allowed to count towards the 192 credits needed for the B.A.
*Students with 45 or more credits transferring from other colleges within Ohio University may not select the undecided major. Transfer students from other universities are not eligible to enroll as undeclared in Arts and Sciences.
