In this unique week long class we will explore theatre as it developed and as it exists now in the exciting city of London, England.
The program will be headquartered in London at Millersville's official partner, the London Metropolitan University , and requires daily field trips to nearby locations in the city. There will be a few meetings in a classroom environment, at London Met, but most class gatherings will be on-site, focusing on first-hand experience (as opposed to lecture) and leaving ample time for students to explore London on their own. The course includes attendance at four professional theatre performances in London , as well as backstage tours at the Globe Theatre, the National Theatre and the Royal Theatre Drury Lane.
Students will select one course from the following offerings:
THEA 217 Theatre Appreciation (G1)
THEA 317 London Theatre Tour (G1 & P)
THEA 412 Topics in Theatre (Advanced Topics)
This class fulfills the general education perspectives requirement. Students should work with their academic advisors to ensure that these 3 credits are appropriately utilized for the student's major/minor requirements or to fulfill General Education requirements.
