The Theatre Arts program at Amarillo College is dedicated to providing students with a quality education supported by an abundance of invaluable practical experiences. The program prioritizes giving all students opportunities beyond the stage, as well. The program is affiliated with the Texas Educational Theatre Association and the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, so AC students receive invaluable workshop, network, and research opportunities in association with numerous other colleges/universities. These connections facilitate the ease of transfer for students to four-year programs around the nation.
Theater majors go on to successful careers in the arts, business, education, government, performance, publishing, and much more. Many, of course, dream of performing for a living. However, skills acquired along the way also prepare graduates for a variety of jobs in theater, film and music, as well as any number of theater-related businesses and enterprises.
