Associate in Fine Arts - Theatre Degree

For the student interested in pursuing a career in theatre, the Cottey College Fine Arts Department offers an Associate in Fine Arts degree.

Cottey College students participate in a variety of main stage productions that are chosen to provide opportunities specifically to young women such as the Cottey College production of the acapella musical As It Is In Heaven, as well as classical productions such as Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream, and Euripede's Women of Troy

Contemporary plays centering around women's experience and issues such as the comedy Dixie Swim Club or the interactive play The Anastasia Trials In The Court of Women are also produced.

Students will take two years of classes that will prepare them in theatrical study, training, and on-stage, hands-on personal experience necessary for pursuing a liberal arts degree in theatre.

Cottey College students will prepare for successful transfer into theatre and speech programs at senior institutions.
