Second-Stage Writing

Students majoring in Theater and Performance Studies will fulfill Occidental College's second-stage writing requirement by completing a significant research and analytical paper in either THEA 301 or THEA 302  during their Sophomore or Junior year, earning a grade of B- or higher. Students not receiving this minimum grade will then either need to work with that faculty member to revise for a higher grade or  take an additional Theater and Performance Studies class with a significant writing project that is preapproved by the Department Chair, and they must earn a grade of B- or higher on the paper.
