AA-T Degree

The Associate in Arts in Theater Arts for Transfer degree (AA-T, Theater) was created to ensure seamless transfer for our Mt. SAC Theater majors to 4-year CSU theater programs. Our wide breadth of offerings, award-winning faculty, and comprehensive introduction to all aspects of live theatrical production (acting, directing, stage management, scenic/costume/lighting design, and playwriting/dramaturgy) prepare our students like no other 2-year program.

Some of our offered classes:

● Acting I&II

● Introduction to Design

● Script Analysis

● Costume & Make-up Design

● Lighting Design

● Stage Management

● Playwriting

● Directing

Along with five (5) professional-level annual theatrical productions, participation in the Kennedy Center/American College Theater Festival, and relationships with Disney, 4-year institutions, and professional theaters - our AA-T degree prepares our students for a career beyond Mt.SAC. For more information (including requirements, full class offerings, and relevant information about our AA-T in Theater, visit Mt.
