Theatre Lighting Certificate

This plan of study, the first in the College of Liberal Arts, allows students to explore and gain expertise in the rapidly developing field of theatrical lighting. It has a more specific range of courses than the existing Theatre Minor while not requiring the variety nor quantity of courses expected in the Majors. In other words, it’s the perfect course for current non-majors who just want to develop their skills in this specific area and have the recognition that the certificate conveys.
