Courses in theatre arts are offered to provide fundamental instruction to three types of students: 1.) those preparing for careers in the professional theatre; 2.) those preparing to teach theatre; and 3.) those wishing to study the art and literature of the theatre for cultural enrichment.
Theatre Arts is now a Field of Study - students will complete 22 hours of theater classes and 38 hours of Core classes to complete the degree.
Four complete theatre productions are presented each year, including a musical during the first summer session. Participation in these productions is not limited to theatre majors. All students interested in theatre are invited and encouraged to audition for these productions.
All theatre courses offered are transferable to university baccalaureate programs. The following transfer guide meets the requirements for the Associate of Arts degree.
Faculty advisor is Dr. Daniel Nazworth, Chair of Fine Arts.
