As part of the TH114 – Introduction to Theatre class, students are required to participate in one hour of practicum work for the Theatre Management Office working in marketing and publicity. Practicum opportunities are posted routinely on the large corkboard across from Room 105 in Rowand-Johnson Hall. Some of those offered are described below.
- Posters: Students are given a set of posters and a location list. Students then visit each location listed and hang the poster/flyer in an available display area. ALWAYS ask the manager for permission first before hanging in a non-campus location.
- Chalking: Chalking is a quick, creative way to get your practicum hour. Students are given chalk, a set of chalking rules, a script to follow and a map. Students then visit the highlighted campus area and chalk on approved sidewalks.
- Other: Check the board for other special opportunities that may arise.
Follow Through! (or “How to Make Sure You Get Your Practicum Credit”):
- If you sign up for it, YOU are responsible for remembering the date, time, place, and dress code (if applicable). You will NOT be reminded of your scheduled practicum assignment.
- Punctuality is a must. If you show up late for your practicum assignment, Theatre Management reserves the right not to grant you credit.
- When you sign up for a practicum, you must list accurate and complete information. Failure to do so can disqualify you from receiving credit.
- For posters and chalking, it is your responsibility to return to the Theatre Management office on the same day before 5:00 PM to get your credit. Failure to do so may result in refusal of credit.
- Don’t wait until the end of the semester to sign up for your practicum work. Slots fill up fast, and opportunities run out.
