This minor is intended for students with an interest in design as the collaborative art of transforming ideas into images which support live performance; design as an expression of human experience; design as a method of inquiry and problem solving. It encourages interdisciplinary learning by connecting the study of theatre with studio art, visual communication, design thinking, spatial design, and visual storytelling.

The Theatrical Design Minor combines courses from the Department of Theatre with additional choices from the departments of Art + Design, Music, and Architecture.
