Department of Theatre

Practicum vs. Theatre Production

Please see the Spring 2020 syllabus

All majors are required to complete 3 semesters with a Theatre Practicum Assignment.  One of those may be gained while performing in a show.

As you continue to participate in productions after you have successfully completed three Practicum assignments, you should continue to receive academic credit for your work.  These credits will be gained by your enrollment in Theatre Production.  These credits will count towards your University Electives requirement (except in the Design and Production Emphasis where one credit of Theatre Production is required.)

The number of credits you receive for a particular Theatre Production assignment- including being cast in shows- will depend on the nature of the work and will be negotiated between you and your supervisor.

All requests for specific Practicum assignments should be forwarded to the Theatre UNI Production Manager.
