    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Ms. V loves teaching the class which makes it easy to show up. There are lots of opportunities in class to work together and the best part is you actually get to experience many parts of what goes into theater.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a lot of confidence in my ability to talk in front of groups. I also learned a lot about how to be confident in my abilities inside and outside of the classroom.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Easiest way to succeed in this class is just to show up and participate. It doesn't get any easier than that.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was what I thought would be an easy elective. Wow was I wrong! There was so much to take in and the professor was fantastic. I had thought through my entire life that plays were just for people that couldn't make it as real actors. Learning the origins of theatre was particularly fascinating. It was the first class that made me feel like I was part of something in college. The group mentality made me feel like I was part of a club that I never would have thought of joining in high school. It was a wonderful experience.

    Course highlights:

    The best moments were being part of a production. We organized and put on a play for the college and it was like nothing I had experienced before. I learned that even though I may not have had an interest in theatre or in plays before this course, there is so much more to acting and production than I ever realized. I also learned how theatre came about in Ancient Greece and the evolution of it into what we see today. It was far more in depth and interesting than I ever expected.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say that if you need a Humanities elective this is something that you may not give a second glance but don't do yourself a disservice by ignoring Theatre Appeciation. It may not be something that you feel like you will use in everyday life but this was one of the only courses in which I actually enjoyed group discussions. The walls that you have with strangers are quickly broken down when you have to analyze acting. The professors are great and bringing up today's most famous actors and comparing acting styles to theatre actors. It is easy to start talking about Tom Hanks to a stranger because almost all of us have seen him in something. It is a great class to take before public speaking as it will get you more comfortable talking in front of others.
