Departmental Honors

An undergraduate interested in honors in theatre must present a written declaration of intention to the department's honors coordinator as early as possible in the junior or senior year. The following are required:

  1. A grade-point average at the time of declaration and at graduation of at least 3.25 overall and 3.5 in theatre courses.
  2. A maximum of 6 hours in THR 498 Honors Seminar. Enrollment in this course must be approved by the honors coordinator. Students in the honors seminar work under the direction of one instructor for each semester. The instructor conducts an examination at the end of each semester's work and assigns a grade. Credit only is given to students who complete the work assigned for any semester but do not complete the requirements for honors. Students may change area of interest or instructor at the beginning of a semester with the consent of the honors coordinator.
  3. Satisfactory performance in a final oral examination given approximately one month before graduation.
