The class will then travel to a select number of theaters in Minnesota to see productions of the plays read, meet with the creative teams that produced the play, and tour the facilities where the productions take place. Emphasis will be placed on cultural, socioeconomic, political, and human diversity issues as they apply to the specific plays/productions. Comparative analysis will take the form of directed classroom discussion and/or analysis papers. Ticket fees for productions seen are extra. Courses in the Honors Program emphasize independent inquiry, informed discourse, and direct application within small, transformative, and seminar-style classes that embrace detailed examinations of the material and feature close working relationships with instructors.
