General Electives (23 credits)
Total Degree Hours: 120
* THEU 181 must be taken for a minimum of six (6) and maximum of nine (9) credit hours. The student should register for THEU 181 their first six (6) semesters in residence. Transfer majors may transfer in as many as three (3) credits of any equivalent of THEU 181 approved by the program director. Late declaring majors will not be required more THEU 181 credits than semesters remaining in their course of study. To clarify, a Regent student declaring a major in theatre at the beginning of the junior year with no prior production credits would only be required four (4) credit hours in THEU 181, which is the number of semesters remaining until graduation. Should the student continue study beyond the fourth year, the student would be expected to continue enrollment in THEU 181 until graduation or until six (6) credit hours have been earned. The same standard is applied to transfer students who transfer without prior or sufficient production credits on their transcript.
** The catalog states: Students may double-count a course applied to general education requirements (for example, between a general education requirement and a major), but they may not triple-count any course (for example, they may not apply the same credits to a general education requirement, a major, and a minor). If THEU 1012 or THEU 132 is taken in general education, it will satisfy THEU 101 or THEU 132 in the major as well.
