The Theatre Honors Program is a special curricular enhancement for outstanding students in the Theatre major. Students become eligible to participate in the Theatre Honors Program at the beginning of their Junior year and will normally complete the program requirements during the ensuing four semesters. The program consists of two major components: (1) Honors Seminars and (2) an Honors Project or Thesis.
Admission to the Theatre Honors Program
Students may apply for admission to the Theatre Honors Program upon completion of the following:
- All 100 and 200-level Core Requirements in Theatre.
- A minimum of nine units of Theatre courses taken at CSUN.
- Attainment of a minimum 3.25 GPA in all Theatre courses taken at CSUN or transferred for credit towards the degree.
- Attainment of a minimum 3.00 GPA in all undergraduate work.
Student applications for admissions to the Theatre Honors Program will normally be submitted near the end of the Sophomore year. In every case applications will require the support of a CSUN Theatre Department faculty member. Applications to the Theatre Honors Program will be reviewed by the Honors Committee, which normally consists of the Honors Advisor and the Coordinators of the several curricular areas of the Theatre Department.
