Shakespeare Studies Minor
The Minor in Shakespeare Studies fosters SUU’s exploration of Shakespeare and Renaissance Studies across multiple disciplines. Students study Shakespeare’s work by exploring the disciplines of theatre, literature, and history to understand the plays in relation to their culture, both then and now. Courses in literature/script analysis, early modern history, literary history specific to period, and acting styles provide the core of required and elective offerings, with special emphasis on the study of dramaturgy linking literary theory to practical work.
