The COC Theatre Department offers courses in both theory and practice. The department offers three degrees: An A.A.T. in Theatre, A.A. in Theatre (General) and A.A. in Theatre (Performance). The department is committed to teaching an immediately useful set of theatre skills, including acting, script-writing, design, technical production and directing while providing a wide spectrum of production experiences in which to practice them; and to place the art of theatre in its larger historical context.
