This program is designed for students who want to emphasize the theatre arts in the planning of their undergraduate degree. Because class size often dictates whether a particular course can be offered, there is no guarantee a student can achieve an Associate Degree in Theatre. Rather, the program is designed for those who would take an Associate in General Studies with an emphasis in Theatre to transfer and complete a Bachelor's degree. Emphasis is placed on the theatre arts as a valuable study for a wide range of career choices. Theatre arts at NIC are not restricted to those who would like to make theatre a profession. Rather, through the study of communication, literary, physical, technical and psychological/emotional skills, a theatre major prepares students for success in many different professions. There are no program prerequisites. Previous experience is, of course, helpful. Scholarships are available. Participation in theatre requires some evenings and weekend work.
