Saint Louis University's theatre minor combines coursework in all aspects of theatre with practical hands-on experience working onstage, in shops, and backstage.
Students in SLU's theatre minor explore both performance and technical work in a dynamic, active, social environment in and out of classrooms. Theatre minors enjoy the same opportunities as majors in terms of participation in the theatre program's busy production season, and take classes alongside theatre majors in classes taught by working professional faculty.

For students who intend to minor in theatre:
- For transfer students, no more than nine credits of coursework may be accepted toward the minor requirements.
- An audition or portfolio review/interview with a full-time theatre faculty member is required prior to final articulation of credits toward the minor.
- Theatre credits may be accepted that do not articulate as fulfilling a minor requirement. These credits may be applied as elective credit toward graduation.
- A minimum of two semesters of THR 3550 Theatre Practicum (0 cr) is required to be successfully completed by the transfer applicant.
All theatre major/minor courses must be completed with a grade of "C" or higher in order to count for theatre major/minor requirements and to continue in the major/minor.
