Students must submit a typed project proposal to the Theatre faculty for their approval at least one year prior to their expected date of graduation. After the completion of the project, the students will meet with the Theatre faculty and staff to report on their experiences and to engage in a critique of the project. Projects will be evaluated by the Theatre faculty and graded Pass with Distinction, Pass, or Fail.
