Minors are a secondary area of academic focus.

Declaring a minor can be helpful if you are wanting a different area of study, but not declaring another major. You can minor in something that compliments your major, or something you find interesting!  

A minor in theatre offers 3 different options. A minor of technical theatre focuses on stagecraft, theatrical design, and live production techniques. The minor in acting focuses on acting and the Fine Art Business Entrepreneurship focuses on front-of-house operations such as box office, marketing, contracts, legal aspects, booking, agents, and business practices.
