Part of the interdisciplinary arts curriculum at Eugene Lang College, the Theater program provides students with a grounding in theater practice through traditional approaches as well as new media, a range of global perspectives, and an emphasis on civic engagement. This liberal arts curriculum combines performance opportunities along with seminars in theater history and theory. The Lang Theater program carries forward The New School’s tradition of progressive education through its emphasis on experimental and socially oriented practice.
Undergraduate students from any school of the university who are not majoring in Liberal Arts can select a minor from Lang’s offerings. Similarly, Lang students who are not pursuing a BA or BS in Liberal Arts can select a minor from those offered in other schools, provided they meet the prerequisites and related requirements. (Lang students pursuing a BA or BS in Liberal Arts: See Self-Designed Major, below.)
The minor in
Theater requires completion of the following five (5) courses:
Total credits: 18-20
Students must receive a grade of C or better in every course used to fulfill area of study requirements.
Students pursuing a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts cannot elect theater as an academic minor; however, they can pursue deeper study in this subject area through the self-designed major. To explore this, contact an academic advisor and read more about the self-designed option at Lang.
