Declaration of Major in Drama
Students majoring in drama receive an education in the core foundations of the discipline, and then are afforded the opportunity to focus their artistic and educational interests in order to prepare themselves for specific careers. The department's theatre production laboratory, TheatreUNCA, as well as independent productions and professional internship opportunities, provide majors with the opportunity to test the theories and practices they study in the classroom in theatrical presentations for the public. The combination of classroom and practical theatre production learning and collaboration allows Drama majors to engage their creative and critical thinking while honing their skills as artists.
Students can choose from the general major in drama, major in drama with teaching licensure, or a minor in drama:
- Declaration requirements include DRAM 113, and one course from DRAM 111, 121, 122 or 144 with a GPA of 2.0 or better.
- To declare a major or minor, students must complete a Declaration of Major or Minor form that must be signed by the department chair. All students must satisfy the LANG 120 requirement before declaring a major or minor.
- No audition or portfolio review is required to declare as a drama major.
Please note: These documents are supplementary to the major and degree requirements stated in UNC Asheville's course catalog. Consult the current course catalog for all drama major/minor requirements and course descriptions.
