 Eighteen hours of THR electives are required. To see a list of approved courses, see the degree requirements tab. Other THR courses, such as special topics, not listed among the Theatre, Culture, and Society electives are normally eligible for substitutes with adviser's permission.

Please note:

All students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are required to completed 120 total hours of which 45 hours must be at the Jr/Sr (300+) level.
