How to Declare Your Major

The undergraduate major is declarable at any stage of the student’s tenure at UT. Students are strongly encouraged to declare their Theatre major as soon as possible – the sooner the department knows of your interest, the sooner you can get involved in productions! There are no progression requirements prior to declaration, but there is a prerequisite course, Theatre 100, without which the major cannot be fulfilled. Once you declare a Major in Theatre you will be assigned an academic advisor who is a member of the Theatre Department.

To declare a Major in Theatre, visit the Theatre Department office at 206 McClung tower and inform one of the staff members that you would like to formally declare the Major. You will then be assigned an advisor based on your area of interest. At that point you will no longer be advised at the Arts and Sciences Academic Advising Center; your departmental advisor will be your guide and will provide clearances for registration.
