CURRICULAR GUIDE

Theatre - Acting Transfer
Associate in Applied Arts Degree

Curriculum Code: 0278  (Effective Fall 1999 - Summer 2004)

Theatre at LCC is designed to provide students as many opportunities to
perform as possible and to focus students towards transfer to a four-year
institution.  A theatre major is part of a learning community:  students take
classes concurrently and work with the same group of students for two years.
The theatre program concentrates on improvisation: Stanislavski method of
script analysis and motivation, analysis of Shakespearean text, and individual
and collaborative creativity.  Graduation is dependent on successful partici-
pation in a minimum of four productions.  Not all courses in this program
transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an
academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.

Students should see the "Course Descriptions" section of this catalog or the
Course Schedule for course prerequisite information.  Basic skills assessment
and advising information may be found on page 8 of this catalog.

General education is an important part of this program and includes a mathe-
matics competency requirement.  To fulfill the mathematics competency require-
ment, students may need to complete specific coursework in mathematics.  For
information on how to fulfill all general education requirements, see page 22.
