Theatre - Associate in Arts


The theatre fundamentals program helps students with a general interest in theatre to interact with people working world in the theatrical worked. Students who follow the program are assured performance opportunities each semester during the two-year program. If the program is completed as specified, the General Education courses will transfer to all Kansas Regent universities as a block.

A limited number of talent grants are available to qualified students. Individuals with previous experience in theatrical performance and/or technical production should apply directly to the coordinator at 913-288-7106.

Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
