The Concentration in Drama and Theatre Arts is ideal for students interested in both English and Theatre Arts, since nearly all of the courses that fulfill this concentration — those with the attribute AEDR in Path@Penn — are cross-listed with that program. Students are strongly encouraged to consult the course listings for both English and for Theatre Arts (THAR) (http://www.sas.upenn.edu/theatrearts) in choosing courses that engage with drama and theatre. In addition, they might consider also adding a minor in Theatre Arts, or even doing a double major in English and in Theatre Arts. Several courses that count towards the English Major’s Drama Concentration can count towards the Theatre Arts Minor (six credits) or the Theatre Arts Major (thirteen credits).
Relevant courses will have the attribute AEDR in Path@Penn.
