concentration in Drama


Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical

The Associate of Arts (AA) degrees are specifically designed for transfer as the equivalent of the first half of the Baccalaureate Degree requirements of most public colleges and Universities.

The Drama concentration offers students a well-balanced base of theatre education and opportunities to perform in, design, build, and run theatrical productions. The Drama concentration provides an environment where students can develop a passion for the theatre as both an art form and a mechanism for growth, expression, and change, become more creative in all aspects of life, appreciate how the theatre arts is applicable to our everyday lives, develop skills in collaboration, communication, and critical thinking, and acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to continue theatre studies at a 4-year university.

Some four-year institutions may not accept all courses as part of their Baccalaureate Degree Program. Students should consult the Department of Fine and Performing Arts and Kinesiology, their Student Success Advisor, or the four-year university to which they wish to transfer for information on transfer agreements. All electives should be chosen in accordance with the degree requirements of the college or university to which the student plans to transfer.

Students must take one technical production lab hour for at least three semesters to total three hours (DRAM 1120, DRAM 1121, DRAM 2120).  It is strongly suggested that students take one technical production lab hour each semester to total four hours in four semesters (DRAM 2121).  This is a consistent requirement for Drama majors in all major universities.
