Here are some links to useful forms to do with academic bureaucracy which are not always easy to find on the Dal website.
- Honours Application Form. Complete this at the end of your third year if you’re intending to graduate with honours (that includes everyone in the acting, scenography and costume studies programmes).
- Letter of Permission. Use this to take a class at another university for credit toward your degree at Dal.
- Class Add/Drop Form. Use this to register for a class after the cutoff date for online registration. You can only do this if the professor gives you permission to.
- Declare a Major. Use this online form to declare your major and/or minor.
- Undergraduate Calendar.

Some shameless self-promotion:
MIDDLETON AND ROWLEY: FORMS OF COLLABORATION IN THE JACOBEAN PLAYHOUSE
by David Nicol
Can the inadvertent clashes between collaborators produce more powerful effects than their concordances? For Thomas Middleton and William Rowley, the playwriting team best known for their tragedy The Changeling, disagreements and friction proved quite beneficial for their work.
This first full-length study of Middleton and Rowley uses their plays to propose a new model for the study of collaborative authorship in early modern English drama. David Nicol highlights the diverse forms of collaborative relationships that factor into a play’s meaning, including playwrights, actors, companies, playhouses, and patrons. This kaleidoscopic approach, which views the plays from all these perspectives, throws new light on the Middleton-Rowley oeuvre and on early modern dramatic collaboration as a whole.

You might be interested to know that a new Minor in Popular Culture will be available to Dalhousie and King’s College students next year. It allows you to choose from 22 classes in Contemporary Studies, Early Modern Studies, English, Film Studies, French, Journalism, Music, and Theatre. If you take 3.5 credits in those classes you can declare the minor as part of your degree.
The full list of classes is as follows. All of these classes are taught regularly, most every two years, and some every year. All listed classes are suitable choices for the Minor in Popular Culture Studies, and those marked with * are strongly recommended as foundational methods classes.

As you may know I am the academic advisor for the Theatre Department. Since we’re getting toward the end of the year and course registration will open soon, it’s worth reminding students of some things that need doing.
If you’re in your third year of a Theatre degree and are planning to graduate with an honours degree, you should be thinking about completing your Honours Form, which must be checked by me and by the registrars before you can graduate with honours. The honours form simply requires you to list the classes that you’ve taken, and the ones that you plan to take to complete your degree. You can get the form here. Feel free to drop by if anything is confusing you. You need to complete it before classes begin in September; try to get it done as early as possible.
If you’re planning to graduate this year, in May, remember that you should have already applied to graduate: it’s not automatic. You can find details here. The deadline was December 1, but you can still apply late, for a fee.
