Everything you do in life involves elements of theater from learning social skills as a child to interviewing for a job as an adult. The study of theater arts offers a number of advantages such as improved oral communication; a healthy self-image; creative problem solving; working cooperatively and independently; the ability to learn quickly; adaptability and flexibility; a goal-oriented approach to work to name a few; and let’s not forget FUN! There is a great deal of fun to be had while developing all those skills.
The Musical Theater Program at MSJC is a non-transfer program offering an A.A. in Musical Theater and a Certificate in Musical Theater. The Program provides interesting and challenging classwork and musical theater productions that kick start your path to becoming a “triple threat” – great at singing, acting, and dancing! This knowledge can enrich a students’ progress towards either further study at a four-year college or entering the entertainment industry workforce.
Note: The Musical Theater A.A. degree and certificate are currently under revision. Students with catalog rights may still earn these awards.
