Theatre Arts and Dance Minors

Students working toward one of the four minors in theatre arts or dance must complete a minimum of 18-24 hours of specific coursework. Hours applied to the minor area of study may not include courses used to fulfill requirements in the student’s major. Because each minor takes at least four long semesters to complete, students should begin the minor in theatre arts or dance as early as possible in their academic career. Prospective minors should meet with the theatre arts and dance advisor as soon as possible for course information regarding prerequisites, availability, etc.

About the Dance Minor

Students who wish to minor in dance must also audition for the dance program. Auditions are held every fall and spring semester and consist of prospective students learning and performing movement in contemporary, ballet, and jazz. Solos will not be seen. Auditions also include an expository writing component. Acceptance to Texas Tech does not ensure admission as a dance minor. Students accepted as a dance minor must complete the following 24 credit hours:

Students in the Dance minor must complete at least ONE course from each technique genre (Jazz, Ballet, and Contemporary); no more than TWO courses from each genre can be applied to the minor/concentration. Some courses may be repeated for credit depending on faculty-assigned placement levels.
