The Associate in Arts in Theatre Arts for Transfer degree is designed to prepare students for a seamless transfer into the CSU system to complete a baccalaureate degree in Theatre Arts.
Theatre and acting students gain self-confidence, teamwork and creativity skills through class projects and performances. Theatre encourages students to take risks, to focus and concentrate, and the tremendous power of personal commitment to a project or play. Open communication, flexible thinking and personal integrity are core values of our Theatre Arts program.
Performance gives us greater insight to ourselves and the lives of others. Studying Theatre and performance helps us find our inner identity, and allow us to change ourselves, using our own personal experiences to create new characters and existences. Theatre in the college environment allows us to create and learn through a shared artistic experience. The creation of Theatre, Performance and Television is an important cultural and social link between the Gavilan Campus and the South Valley Communities.
The Theatre Program offers three different Associate in Arts degrees: Acting, Technical Production and Television, and an Associate in Arts in Theatre Arts for Transfer (AA-T) degree.
