Department of Theatre & Drama to offer options for graduate students:
I wanted to also mention that the Department of Theatre & Drama is
committed to offering options for graduate students to take courses in our
department. Some DIG members have found that they can approach individual
professors about adding graduate sections of courses, especially those
upper-level undergraduate courses that have small enrollments. Several of
our combination grad-undergrad courses have been quite successful,
including Postmodernism and Performance, offered last term. Please be sure
to peruse our offerings.
