(View List of Theatre Arts Families)

Theatre Arts activity courses are subject to repeatability limitations. Students are now limited to a maximum of four courses per family. A family of courses may contain more than four courses. If there are more than four courses in a particular family, a student may only enroll in a maximum of four total courses within that family. A course previously taken by a student (prior to the legislation) within the identified family will count as a repeat and limit future enrollments of courses within that family to a maximum of four.

Theatre Arts activity courses are offered in levels by progression. Courses are listed by title; for example, Acting, Rehearsal and Performance, etc., and then by level. Level I is beginning; Level II is intermediate; Level III is intermediate/advanced; and Level IV is advanced. The course number also indicates the level. For example, a beginning Acting class would be listed as DRAM 201.1, Acting I while an advanced Acting class would be DRAM 201.4, Acting IV.

New students are advised to enroll in the beginning level and be placed by their instructor upon assessment. Continuing students who have previously taken a course within a family, must progress to the next level.
