Upon entering MMC, I was torn between choosing a theatre-based major and a non-performing arts major because of my interests in different academic fields. Discovering that MMC had a Theatre Arts minor allowed me to study the aspects of theatre that I am passionate about while also allowing myself to devote time to my other academic interests.Jacqueline Carrillo ’21
