Minor in Musical Theatre

The Musical Theatre Minor at UNCG is designed for students in Theatre, Music, and Dance to enhance their designated course of study with a series of musical theatre courses including history, vocal technique, audition and repertoire coaching, musicianship, scene study, and dance styles.  Students enrolled in the Musical Theatre Minor can also take advantage of numerous elective course offerings from the schools of Theatre, Music, and Dance to further enhance their experience and training. Acceptance into the Minor is achieved through an audition and interview process once enrolled at UNCG.
