The Theatre Arts major leads to an Associate of Arts degree with an emphasis in Theatre or Dance. Through sequential study in theatre arts and through completion of the college's AA degree program, students develop the ability to create and perform works of theatre and dance. In addition, students learn to analyze performances in the context of theatre/dance history, theory, literature, and practice. Study of theatre and dance also equips students with alternate methods of exploration and problem solving that are useful in multiple disciplines. As with all programs, students who intend to transfer to a four-year institution should research the transfer institution's requirements and plan to complete the CSU GE Breadth pattern or IGETC GE pattern. Please check with a counselor for more specific transfer information.
