The Associate in Arts in Theatre Arts for Transfer (AA-T) prepares students to move into a curriculum at a four-year institution leading to a baccalaureate degree in theatre arts which can lead to careers in teaching, design, technical theatre, theatre management, professional performance, stage direction, stage management, etc. Please consult a counselor regarding specific course requirements to your transfer institution. Completion of the AA-T degree also provides guaranteed admission with junior status to the CSU system along with priority admission to the local CSU, Fullerton, in the Theatre Arts major.  Upon completion of the AA-T in Theatre Arts students will understand and be able to demonstrate the fundamental performance and technical production processes for the theatre arts, demonstrate knowledge of the historical and cultural dimensions of theatre, and  understand the interaction between script, actor, and audience and the areas of scenery, lighting, sound, and costume.
