Purpose: The Associate of Arts Liberal Arts curriculum in Theatre Performance offers an emphasis in acting and performance. The Associate of Arts degree curriculum may be used by students who wish to transfer to a four-year college or university to complete the Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre.
Program and Graduation Requirements: A core requirement for majors in the liberal arts at Thomas Nelson and at most four-year schools is competency in a foreign language through the 200 course level. Liberal Arts students who do not have this intermediate level competency are strongly encouraged to enroll in a foreign language in their first semester and to complete all required semesters of foreign language before transfer. Students should map out their semester schedules with this foreign language requirement in mind.
