This theater class is a great chance to branch out into creative work and community involvement. UO students create and perform a play together with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities from the Eugene-Springfield community. Tell stories from your life, work on the script, improv, write, act, dance, play music, or manage lights, sound, costumes, and props. No tests or papers, but classes are 6 hours/week to allow rehearsal time. Also counts for the Disability Studies Minor. For more information, contact Prof. Elizabeth Wheeler: ewheeler@uoregon.edu.

Fulfills: 

Old Major: F-Upper-Division Elective

Upper-division Elective courses allow students to choose (or “elect”) courses or faculty specific to their own developing interests, enabling them thereby to shape their own educational experience.

F-Gender/Ability/Queer Studies/Sexuality

Gender, Ability, Queer Studies, and/or Sexuality courses focus on the ways that issues of sexuality, gender, queerness, and disability are represented, critiqued, and developed in media and literature.

Disability Studies Minor

Disability Studies courses focus on how ableism (anti-disability prejudice) operates in different nations and how disability intersects with other forms of identity like gender, class, nationality, and race in complex and varied patterns.  Courses draw from fields like international development, health professions, design, sign language interpreting, education, and non-profit management.

English Minor

English Minor courses offer students centuries of cultural experience and representation in poetry, prose, drama, film, TV, new media, and folk artifacts.  The English minor can focus and extend the values of a liberal arts education, while also providing extensive training in writing, speaking, and critical thinking.
