Theater Concentration

Theater Concentration

The Theater Concentration is an eighteen (18) semester hour program designed for students with an interest in theater. Students will experience different learning pedagogies within a common theme as they complete their general education requirements and prepare for transfer with a solid knowledge base and concentrated portfolio in the performing arts. The curriculum includes a core of fundamental courses in Acting and Stagecraft, along with multiple options for courses in Speech, Humanities, and Literature, many of which have IAI transfer codes.

Students meeting the requirements for the Theater Concentration will have a notation added to their transcript. In order to receive the notation, students must meet with the Chair of Performing Arts and submit a Theater Concentration Completion Form.
