    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it gives you the origins of theater if you are majoring in Acting/Drama Education. Before you had a desire to perform, there were others with this same desire, these same people were the ones to build a type of "rule" to follow when perform in theater. This course teaches you who they are and where they come from.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that everything started in Athens. I learned that there were no microphones used in theater before and that actors had to use their voices only in order for the sound to reach millions of spectators. I also learned that acting started as religious celebrations for gods and then became entertainment.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would advice you to be ready to read plays and analyze them. It is very important that you have a basic understanding of the historical period of the plays in order to understand the language and context. So, anytime you have to read a play, first look at the period of time and then go ahead and read the play. Also, be ready to form your own interpretations of these plays and not perceive them as having only one meaning.

    | Would recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because not only do you learn about theatre history and how it all began but you also learn skills that help you become more confident and helps you get out of your comfort zone. Which I think its something everyone needs to learn, it's helpful for anyone not just theatre majors.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot about Theatre years ago and how it evolved into what it is today. I learned about the famous playwrights that made theatre possible for example Shakespeare.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Listen well, take lots of study notes, and be ready to get up and learn about monologues. Come to class excited to learn, it will make the experience so much better for you.
