ACADEMIC MAP (Effective Summer 2017 and after)

This map is a term-by-term sample course schedule. The milestones listed to the right of each term are designed to keep you on course to graduate in four years. The Sample Schedule serves as a general guideline to help you build a full schedule each term. The General Education and Elective courses must be selected to satisfy all area and multicultural requirements unless your program meets these requirements with major courses. Milestones are courses and special requirements necessary for timely progress to complete a major. Missing milestones will result in one of two types of map registration stops. The first level (Degree Map Off-track) is placed following grade posting if the student has missed a milestone (course and/or GPA) for the first time in the major. If a student is in non-compliance with milestones for two (2) consecutive semesters (excluding summers), a Major Change Required stop is placed on the student's registration.

The curriculum for B.F.A. degree students in music theatre is a pre-professional program that provides intensive, in-depth training. It will provide the foundation necessary and essential for continued specialization in acting at the graduate level or in the professional theatre. The B.F.A. degree in acting is a limited-access major. To be formally admitted to the major, you must have been accepted through an audition, have earned a B minus or better in THE2020, a C minus or better in all other Theatre required courses, and have the required overall GPA of 2.50.
