This program is ideal for you, if you are passionate about performance and interested in learning about all aspects of theatre, both on stage and behind the scenes.

Theatre extended minor

You can combine an extended minor in Theatre with another extended minor in one of five fine arts disciplines, including Art History and Visual Studies, Creative Writing, Graphic Design, Media and Communication Studies, and Visual Arts.

The Theatre extended minor requires 24 lower-level credits, including one practicum experience, and 16 upper-level credits.

CAREER EXPECTATIONS

Because most jobs in the performing arts are short-term assignments, most actors, directors, and producers are self-employed. Hiring a reputable agent to represent you can help boost your success.

Mastering special skills such as dancing, singing, playing a musical instrument, acrobatics, juggling, horseback riding, sword fighting, archery, martial art, or stunt work can open additional employment opportunities.

Jobs also exist in related areas such as stage management, set or costume design, event promotion, lighting or sound management, scriptwriting, stunt coordination, fundraising, commercial video production, and more.

Many theatre grads also use the communication, teamwork, and management skills they have acquired to excel in other fields such as business, public relations, advertising, hospitality, arts administration, or education.

Description

The close nature of UFV Theatre has nurtured my growth as an artist and set up a path to continue my growth as a scholar and fight director. I came as an emerging actor and since then I have had roles like actor, assistant stage-manager, designer, operator, director and choreographer.
