    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This class is very challenging if you don't know anything about theatre. THEA 103 Aesthetics of Theatre is all about script analysis and finding the underlying and specific plot points within the story.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how to effectively analyze a script how Michael O'Hara wanted me to. I also learned a lot about how to find character's points of existing within a show. The rest was just about how the professor wanted everything done, to be quite honest.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Know your theatre. Know your theatre history. Do not give "wishy washy" answers, give strong and dedicated answers. Be able to back up what you're saying TEXTUALLY, otherwise the professor will not accept your answers.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It's a course that will get your brain moving. It's sometimes frustrating trying to decipher what the professor means cause it's all new information, add that with trying to get a long and do good work with your group members. I read a lot of plays and learned how to analyze them which helps in my specific area of study. Don't freak out, you'll survive, it just takes some hard work.

    Course highlights:

    You get to one, meet people outside of your major and concentration, and you get to read so many classic plays that you may have otherwise not have read if it were up to you. You get to look at performances at BSU through the lens of a critic, and write a critique on aspects of the production. It helps you become a better writer and thinker all at the same time.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Don't give up. Take the tests on time. Have something to say in your group meetings. READ THE PLAYS! If there isn't a leader in the group, be the leader. You'll be fine. If you put in the work, you'll get a good grade.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is a required course for all theatre majors and minors, but its the most interesting class I have had to take yet. It is without a doubt, the hardest class of my freshman year, but also the most rewarding.

    Course highlights:

    The knowledge gained in a short amount of time through this class is astounding. The class teaches you how to analyze plays, a necessary skill for anyone learning theatre.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work with your group well. Put the time in outside of class. Get the projects done before the night behore they're due.
