Program Description
Students in Kelly Kinsella theater workshop

The Theatre Arts program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to prepare for a career in the theatre, with its related performance, design, and technical fields, through an integrated combination of academic and production experience. While serving students through career preparation and enrichment through a diversity of courses and productions, the Theatre Arts program is also dedicated to enhancing the cultural life of the campus and the larger community. Students who complete the Theatre Arts program earn an Associate in Arts degree, which prepares students for transfer to programs at four‐year institutions.

Employment Potential 

Actors, directors, theater technicians, stage managers, designers of costumes, scenery, lights, and sound, and over 60 additional creative and managerial job opportunities are to be found in the theater and the entertainment industry of television and film. Students completing a Theatre Arts degree will be well prepared for entry‐level positions in the field or for continued study in any four‐year undergraduate program.
