The College’s Theatre Arts certificate program offers students sufficient training to be able to join the professional work force without obtaining a bachelor’s degree. Students obtain a wide range of knowledge and skills through the certificate program increasing their chances of working in the theatre in some capacity, whether it be in acting, stage management, or technical theatre. The practicum requirement also gives them practical experience working on an actual production. Students who wish to pursue an Associate in Arts or Bachelor in Arts degree may still choose the Communication Arts/Theatre Option associate degree program.
