CTE rule

The program in drama prepares students for an entry-level career in community and professional theater. Careers may include scene shop technician, property artisan, electrician, costume technician, makeup technician, scenic artist, or stage manager. The program also prepares students who wish to expand their careers to entry-level technical video and film positions, as well as entry into a four-year university or professional school.

While this program of study is not designed as a transfer program, selected courses in the program meet lower division requirements for the bachelor of arts degree at many California State University and University of California campuses. Consult with department faculty and a college counselor for more information.
