The Arts and Sciences - Theatre program provides knowledge and skills in drama, expressive communication, performance, technical theatre and production. Graduates are well positioned to transfer to Maryland institutions, such as Towson University or University of Maryland Baltimore County, as well as out-of state programs in Theatre. Students are advised to investigate opportunities to take coursework concurrently at McDaniel College or Hood College. For details about these special agreements, consult with an academic adviser in the Advising and Transfer Center. By using ARTSYS, students can plan a course of study that will transfer seamlessly to a baccalaureate degree-granting institution.
