Associate in Fine Arts in Theatre (A.F.A.)

The Associate in Fine Arts in Theatre is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year college or university to major in Theatre. However, the AFA degree is not included in the Comprehensive Articulation Agreement, so transfer credit at the four-year institution is awarded on a course-by-course basis along with the presentation of a portfolio. The AFA in Theatre has two tracks allowing students to specialize in either Performance or Technical Theatre. The AFA requires 30 hours of general education core courses and 30 semester hours of courses in Theatre. Transfer students should contact the senior (four-year) institution for specific transfer requirements.
