The Theatre Arts Teaching Minor is an approved teaching minor for Secondary Education students majoring in other subject areas. Students enrolled in this minor must interview with the Theatre Arts Department and submit a portfolio that includes their diverse theatre experiences to date. This portfolio is used for advising purposes, as well as for scholarship consideration. The portfolio is required for entrance into the STEP Program, and USOE currently requires a portfolio in lieu of a praxis exam, in order for the student to be considered “highly qualified,” according to the “No Child Left Behind” regulations.
