Each of the five Theatre Arts Certificates offer a variety of classes designed to provide the student with specific skills and training. Students must choose an area of emphasis and complete the assigned courses with satisfactory grades. In addition, all students enrolled in the certificate program will be assigned a faculty advisor who will meet with them regularly to monitor their progress.

Career certificates are intended to certify that students have successfully completed this program and are prepared to enter the careers associated with each certificate. They take one to two years to complete. These programs are approved by the California Community College Chancellor's Office.
