Hegis Code: 5610

Program Learning OutcomesCurriculum Code: THAC-AS, THGT-AS, THTT-AS
 

     This program provides rigorous theatre training as a powerful form of experiential learning that prompts students to grow as individuals, critical thinkers, and artists. Through classroom and practical training in acting, general and technical theatre sequences, the Theatre Department produces works of theatre art, offering direct participation in creative endeavors where process, performance, and understanding are stressed equally. The production program stages several shows each year which are directed and designed by faculty, guest artists and students. These productions span all genres of theatre, from Shakespeare to Shephard, from mystery plays to musical theatre. The Theatre Arts A.S. Degree provides the foundation for transfer into B.A. or B.F.A. programs and, in some instances, employment in the field. Students MUST consult with a faculty advisor in the Theatre Department before entering this program and scheduling classes.
