Your dreams of being a performer and an entertainer are well understood here. In the Drama department, we will offer you training in theater production, including performance, technical and business aspects. Our courses cover the development of theater, from the early Greeks to the bright lights of Broadway.

We also meet transfer requirements to universities. With Drama, you can start a career in teaching, Community Theater, motion pictures, or television.

The Drama Department offers training, both theoretical and practical, in theatrical production, including performance, technical and business management aspects, as well as the serious study of the development of those aspects from the early Greeks up to the bright lights of Broadway.

We believe that the creativity, the personal interaction, and the excitement of participating in a performance is an experience highly valuable to any individual.

The heightened awareness of beauty and truth are carried on into the later life of the student to perhaps enable him or her to appreciate more fully what is available.

It is recommended that students intending to major in this field take all courses offered by this department, plus Communicative Arts in the Communication Studies Department. Introductory music, art, and dramatic literature courses would also be valuable.

Transfer major requirements in Drama are available in the Counseling Center. Students should consult a counselor and the appropriate college catalog for other transfer requirements. Catalogs of California and out-of-state colleges are located in the Library and the Counseling Center.

Positions for which four-year graduates in Drama are qualified are teaching, community theater, television, motion pictures, and professional theatre.
