All Marshall University students are encouraged to participate in theatre courses and performances.  Classes are offered in performance and production areas.
The Theatre Minor has two goals:

  • To provide regular academic opportunities for all Marshall Students interested in Theatre. These opportunities may be formalized as a Theatre Minor.
  • To encourage Marshall students to participate regularly in Marshall University Theatre productions.

Students enrolling in the Theatre Minor must fill out an advisement folder to be left in the Theatre Department Office. Students should regularly update their contact information contained in the folder.

Students looking for assistance with advisement or other academic issues should make an appointment to meet with the Theatre Department Chair.
