Theatre Arts at UCC is dedicated to developing the curiosity and creativity of students. With a wide variety of classes, productions every quarter, and outreach projects that engage theatre students with the contemporary ways arts impact their surroundings, the Theatre Arts program is designed to provide the skills and experience needed to fulfill transfer requirements for four-year institutions and be competitive in the professional field, all while making a cultural contribution to the community.

An Associate of Arts/Oregon Transfer (AAOT) is a degree for students who complete a full lower division college transfer program that meets requirements set jointly by Oregon’s community colleges and the Oregon University System. Many theatre departments at universities also require additional Theatre Arts classes; work closely with UCC advisors and faculty as well as your intended transfer university for specific details.
