The Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) in Theatre degree program is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution in order to pursue a BFA in the Theatre Arts and/or acquire credentials for a career in arts-related areas. The program includes general education requirements, Theatre foundation courses in acting and stagecraft, as well as a wide variety of performance and production-related electives. Students will focus on the development of performance skills and a basic knowledge of technical theatre, while participating firsthand in fully realized theatrical productions every semester. Classes will also encourage analytical skills and critical analysis. Students will be encouraged to participate in state and regional theatre auditions and festivals with audition pieces prepared specifically with an eye toward securing professional work.
