What is "Theatre Technology"?

The theatre technology degree is designed as a university-parallel program for students to transfer to four-year institutions. The faculty and staff are theatre professionals with extensive experience in design and technology including: scenic, lighting, costumes, props, make-up/hair, sound, directing and stage management. Curriculum is based on skills required to enhance students’ technical skills including: stage craft, lighting and costume fundamentals, make-up, stage management, script analysis, and portfolio. Successful students achieve real-world experience participating in our theatre productions in several performance venues. Students must pass all THE courses with a grade of C or better. As part of this degree program, students must complete the requirements of the Ohio Transfer Module in order to graduate.
