You may pursue a project in writing, directing, design, acting, literature, history, or theory. All projects must have a research component and a substantial written portion. Projects may also have a production component.
You must have at least a B average in your theater studies courses to be eligible to apply for a project. Here is the Policy for Graduation with Distinction in Theater Studies and an application form. Contact the director of undergraduate studies or assistant with questions. Your project needs the approval of the your chosen project supervisor and of the director of undergraduate studies. All projects need to be approved before registration in the spring semester of the year prior to the project.
A committee comprised of the project supervisor, the director of undergraduate studies, and a third faculty member in Theater Studies or a related field approved by the director of undergraduate studies will evaluate your project. The committee will hold a conference with you after the written work and project have been evaluated. This jury will decide whether distinction is awarded and at what level. Three levels of distinction are possible: Distinction, High Distinction, and Highest Distinction.
