Become a speech and theatre education major
Becoming a pre-major is different than being admitted into the communication program. Being admitted into the speech and theatre education degree program signifies that you have completed the necessary requirements for admission and establishes the catalog year for your program. In other words, if changes are made to your major’s requirements after you have been admitted, those changes would not apply to you.
Prior to completing the 59 hours required for admission into the speech and theatre education program, you will be a pre-major. Declaring a pre-major early allows you to be assigned a faculty advisor within the department, begin working toward completing the departmental core, properly sequence your courses and connect with the activities and opportunities offered by the communication department.
