Theater Arts (Course 21M-2)
Bachelor of Science in Theater Arts
General Institute Requirements (GIRs)
The General Institute Requirements include a Communication Requirement that is integrated into both the HASS Requirement and the requirements of each major; see details below.
|Summary of Subject Requirements||Subjects|
|Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) Requirement [between three and six subjects can be satisfied by subjects in the Departmental Program]; at least two of these subjects must be designated as communication-intensive (CI-H) to fulfill the Communication Requirement.||8|
|Restricted Electives in Science and Technology (REST) Requirement||2|
|Laboratory Requirement (12 units)||1|
|Total GIR Subjects Required for SB Degree||17|
|Physical Education Requirement|
|Swimming requirement, plus four physical education courses for eight points.|
Choose at least two subjects in the major that are designated as communication-intensive (CI-M) to fulfill the Communication Requirement.
|Select three of the following:||36|
|Introduction to Acting|
|Fundamentals of Theater Design|
|Physical Improvisation: Bodies in Motion|
|In consultation with the Major Advisor, select a coherent program of Theater Arts subjects, which may include a pre-thesis tutorial (21M.THT) and a thesis (21M.THU). The decision to write a thesis is made in consultation between the student and advisor. 1||90-96|
|Units in Major||126-132|
|Unrestricted Electives 2||96-132|
|Units in Major That Also Satisfy the GIRs||(36-72)|
|Total Units Beyond the GIRs Required for SB Degree||186-192|
The units for any subject that counts as one of the 17 GIR subjects cannot also be counted as units required beyond the GIRs.
See the Theater Arts subject listing for a list of available subjects. CI-M subjects for Theater Arts can be found in the CI-M subject listing. Pursuit of the thesis is by application only. By the beginning of the second semester of the junior year, all interested students will write a thesis proposal in consultation with the Major Advisor. This proposal will be submitted to the Theater Arts Curriculum Committee, which will communicate its decision to the student in April.
This chart has been calculated based on an overlap of 36 units (three subjects) between the HASS General Institute Requirement and the departmental requirements. Students who develop a program of study with more overlap will be able to select more unrestricted electives to meet the number of total units beyond the GIRs required for an SB degree.
