The Associate in Arts for Theater for Transfer (AA-T) major is designed to provide knowledge, training, and practical experience in all aspects of theater arts. The benefit of transfer admission with junior status to the CSU and UC schools is of immeasurable value for our students.

Associates Degree

Similar to the AA for Transfer Degree, the AA at LPC degree allows students to graduate in 2-3 years with an associate’s degree in theater. The course work for this degree, though generally the same as the AA-T degree, allows students to focus some of their time it the theater program more specifically on areas of theater related to their own interest, from one of the following: Technical Theater, Performance/Acting, of Theater History/Theory. Students are given the opportunity to hand craft the program that most interests them.
