TH 376 - Senior Project
A culminating experience for the theater major. In consultation with faculty, each student will submit a project proposal for departmental approval by the end of the junior year. Projects should be based upon the student’s past work and provide an appropriate next challenge for the student’s development as a theater artist. Projects must be sponsored and supervised by an appropriate faculty member. Every student’s Senior Project will involve a significant writing component based upon guidelines provided for each concentration. Possible projects include:
- Performing in a seminar or faculty-directed studio production
- Directing a studio production
- Designing a studio or seminar production

- Preparing a thesis (research paper, design project, playwriting project, etc.)
- Creating a special production workshop (this is dependent upon approval through the established departmental workshop procedures)
