Enrollment in the Shakespeare Studies program is required of all out-of-state groups (and of in-state groups unaffiliated with Oregon public educational institutions) who choose to stay on the SOU campus. During your visit each student must receive a minimum of four hours of educational programming on the SOU or Oregon Shakespeare Festival campuses. This requirement can be fulfilled by SOU offered classes, OSF classes*, or by your qualified instructor (must be approved in advance by Shakespeare Studies and have at least a M.A. in English or Theatre required).

Except where otherwise noted, classes are one hour long and maximum class size is 40; larger groups must be divided to be accommodated. For more information, contact:
