For information, contact the Department of Music, 109 Presser Hall, 513-529-3014, or the Department of Theatre, 119 Center for Performing Arts, 513-529-3053.

This minor offers students the opportunity to pursue the specialized skills necessary for performance in music theatre: acting, singing, and dancing. Students will complete courses in these three distinct disciplines as well as integrate them in an upper-level acting course and through participation in productions. The minor is designed to enhance the current music and theatre major curricula. Admission to the minor is open to Music and Theatre majors by audition only. All courses in the minor must be taken for a grade (except for KNH/THE110A which is offered credit/no credit only); a minimum GPA of 2.00 is required in the minor.
