Notes

Participation in Mainstage productions is highly recommended for the student to gain valuable experience and practical knowledge of theatre production.

Students who wish to certify to teach theatre (drama) in secondary schools must take five additional credits of theatre, complete a first teaching field (major) in a state-approved College of Idaho program, and the Education Minor in the Professional Studies & Enhancements PEAK in preparation for the internship year. Please consult with the Education Department for specifics.
