General Electives (6 hours):
|Two upper division (3000-5000 level) THEA courses.|
- THEA 2010 cannot be substituted for THEA 3500 if you declare Theatre as a major.
- If you are interested in more acting classes, please note that most acting courses (other than THEA 3600; May term offerings THEA 5335 and 5565 are open to non-majors) are limited only to theatre majors. THEA 3500 is required for Theatre majors but can, in rare cases, be taken by theatre minors if they have first taken THEA 2010 and THEA 3290. If a declared theatre minor has (a) completed both of those two classes and (b) there are open seats in THEA 3500 one week before the start of classes, they can email the Student Support Coordinator (dinac at uga) for major override.
- No course will count toward a minor unless it is earned with a grade of “C” or better. (A grade of “C-” does not satisfy this requirement.)
- Transfer students may count no more than three hours of equivalent credit toward the minor.
