The minor in Theater is open to all NYU Abu Dhabi students and offers the opportunity to explore the history, theory, and practice of theater and performance. The study of this ancient, universal, and multi-faceted art form illuminates the power of the imagination in engaging with and shaping the political and spiritual lives of individuals and cultures.
The minor in Theater is designed to be combined with a major in another discipline and to develop the student's capacity for intellectual and creative risk-taking in the pursuit of knowledge. The expressive and interpretive skills developed in working with dramatic material make the minor in Theater an excellent component of a well-rounded liberal arts education.
All courses that a student wishes to count towards the minor in Theater must be approved in advance by the student's mentor, including those taken at NYU's global sites. Only one course may double-count for the minor in Theater and another major or minor.
