Theoretical knowledge forms a solid base, but is only the beginning of the education process at CCM. Students in the four-year undergraduate program take studio and production courses in all areas, beginning with introductory and basic courses and progressing to advanced sequences in a major area.
Additionally, students study theater history, script analysis, dramatic literature, English, world history and arts history, as well as other liberal arts and electives.
Graduate students follow a similar, more specialized structure in a two-year (or three-year) program. The balance among theater-related, academic and free- elective courses is established by NAST (National Association of Schools of Theater), which has accredited our programs.
