Tailored opportunities to learn more.

Valpo’s theatre department offers several minors for students who seek to explore the field beyond the introductory level. Students can specialize in areas of performance or technical theatre, or they can pursue more general studies. All minors require a minimum of 18 credits.

All theatre minors are also encouraged to register for THTR 399: Theatre Colloquium each semester they are on campus. The Colloquium builds a strong community among theatre students and introduces them to professional theatre-makers, including Valpo alumni.
