Theatre (THEAA)

Award: Associate in arts degree

Program location: Elkhorn Valley Campus, Fort Omaha Campus, South Omaha Campus

This degree trains students in the history, performance, production, and cultural importance of theatre. Theatre - a blend of visual arts/design, music, literature, research, physical expression, technology, and business - is the quintessential liberal arts degree. Theatre studies strengthen interpersonal communication and public presentation skills; develop critical thinking and collaborative skills; and give a solid background in interdisciplinary arts, social awareness, and appreciation of diverse cultures. Students who successfully complete this degree can go on to a baccalaureate institution to major in theatre, speech/communications, film/digital media, or related humanities or education fields.
