Drama, A.A.


Return to Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical Return to: Degree Plans & Certificates - Academic/Technical

The Drama program is geared to help students, both as participants and as audience, to understand and appreciate the unique value of theater, and to prepare drama majors for successful transfer. Drama majors and/or interested students are given the opportunity to perform in or to help design and run a theatrical production. All drama majors must take one technical production lab hour each semester to total four technical production lab hours; this is a consistent requirement for drama majors going on to a university. All auditions for the productions are open to any student in good academic standing. Theater Appreciation, DRAM 1310, will fulfill the core aesthetics requirement. The other courses offered are: Stage Make-up, Acting I & II, Creative Dramatics, and Voice and Articulation.

All electives should be chosen in accordance with the degree requirements at the college or university to which the student will be transferring. Some four-year institutions may not accept all courses that are listed under “area of concentration” as part of a baccalaureate major. Students must check with their advisors in the Fine & Performing Arts/Speech Communication Department and/or the four-year university to which they plan to transfer for information on the 2+2 agreements.

Students who intend to major in Drama and have not yet decided on the senior college that they will attend, should meet with their PAC advisor and follow Palo Alto College’s generic degree plan for Drama.
