Potential Careers & Wages
While students can choose to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a bachelors degree in theatre, some students use theatrical training for a launchpad to other career opportunities.
Students should meet with an Academic Advisor to develop a clear pathway leading to a seamless transfer experience or transition to the workforce. For additional possibilities that may require an advanced degree or certification, make an appointment with an Academic Advisor.
