Speech and Theatre Arts - Theatre Option, A.A.

The Speech and Theatre program uses classroom and hands-on experiences on stage to develop student performance skills. Classes in acting and make-up teach students about the theories, techniques and elements of theatre. Courses cover subjects such as role preparation, diction, and auditioning. Additional experience can be gained by participating in any of the College’s stage productions during the year. Associate degrees in theatre give students the background needed to continue their education at a four-year college or university. Graduating students may find career opportunities performing, directing, producing, writing, critiquing or teaching. Other program option also available is speech.
