Prerequisite: THE 223
Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Fundamentals and uses of stage lighting equipment and stage lighting design. Practical application of design media and shop facilities. Participation in production activity for University Theater presentations.

Addition of THE Stagecraft prerequisite requested by Joshua Reaves. Students learn foundations of wiring and electrical necessary to complete the design work in the course. Students entering the course without the stage lighting component in THE 223 are disadvantaged, so those fundamentals have been taught in THE 233 compromising the integrity of the design work in the latter part of the semester.

Student Learning Outcomes

  1. To gain a working knowledge of lighting, electrical, electronic, and mechanical lighting theory.

  2. To understand and apply the basic tools, technologies, and theories of lighting design

  3. To understand and use computerized data and storage systems for lighting design.   The student will also be able to use the available technical literature, to pursue complex problems and design situations, to a creative end.

  4. To apply critical thinking and creative problem solving techniques to lighting design by developing new ideas, theories, and in using laboratory process.

  5. To show evidence of this process through application, by project work, and through supervised lighting laboratories and design experiences.
