Program description

Associate Degree in Theatre

The Communication Arts major at Delaware County Community College blends the theoretical with the practical by providing students with a foundation in the study of human communication that prepares them to continue academic study in the field. In particular, students select specialized programs and related electives by choosing one of three degree program options: Communication Studies, Journalism, or Theatre. When selecting a Communication Arts program option, including courses and electives, the student should consult four-year transfer institution requirements.

The Theatre option is designed for students who wish to continue academic study in theatre, acting (for stage or film), directing, and/or technical theatre (lights, sound, set construction, etc.). Students who wish to continue to a four-year degree in theatre or performance art should choose this option.
