All first year Theater Majors are advised to take the theater core curriculum and as many general education requirements as possible. As each student's field of study is specified in more detail, they will be assigned an academic advisor specific to that area. In some cases, students can request particular faculty members as advisors.
Each semester a student schedules an advising session with their academic advisor. Using the student's DARs (Degree Audit Report) the student, with counseling from the advisor, maps out progress and reviews goals toward a degree.
