Transfer Pattern Description

Beyond the General Education requirements and other degree, program, and elective requirements, this pattern should be considered in light of the requirements of the selected transfer institution. Students should consult with a transfer coordinator or their Theatre discipline advisor for information about specific requirements. This sequence of courses should be adjusted to meet the requirements of the transfer institution.
CCBC is an accredited institutional member of The National Association of Schools of Theatre. The Theatre program transfer pattern follows guidelines established by that organization.

In addition, the program strives to provide opportunities and support for artistic, academic and professional development for faculty and staff.
