Theater Arts

Degree: AA  |  Graduation Requirements: 60 credits

Program Summary:

Committed to producing multi-cultural and sustainable theater for emerging theater artists.

SUNY Sullivan's Theater Arts program is a two-year theater generalist program that prepares students to transfer to any SUNY four-year college as a junior with training in acting, voice and speech, musical theater, physical theater, design, and stagehand work. One musical, one contemporary and one classical play are produced each year in the college's Seelig Theater.

Students benefit from the program's ties to all professional and amateur theaters in the surrounding region. The Performing Arts Club provides extracurricular outlets for students and participation in the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.

The Theater Arts AA Program encourages students to use the medium of theatrical art to observe, illuminate, and effectively communicate the diversity of human experience. Based upon the SUNY Transfer Path for Theater, the degree enables students to readily transfer to a SUNY four-year college or university upon completion of the equivalent of four semesters of full-time study.
