Earning Your Theatre Degree
CMC offers an Associate of Arts degree with a theatre emphasis
Pursue a theatre emphasis degree at Colorado Mountain College and you’re likely to earn a role on every playbill, on stage or backstage.
In contrast to most large universities, our students have many opportunities early in their study to assume a variety of production roles, spanning the entire gamut from acting to set design. The hands-on experience you build here at CMC will form an excellent foundation for entry-level jobs or transfer to a four-year program.
The CMC theatre degree program includes a strong emphasis upon theatre appreciation. Because the theatre has long held a central cultural position in societies past and present, the study of theatre is truly a study of many things, including history, philosophy, psychology, religion, politics and more. Playwrights reflect, analyze and challenge issues and themes of their times. Theatre offers a unique insight into how societies view themselves and matters of great importance.
Our campus at Spring Valley is situated in a culturally-active community, midway between Aspen and Vail. You’ll have the unique opportunity here to work alongside seasoned local actors. Our New Space Theatre seats 100 and is fully equipped with a versatile stage and customized control booth to orchestrate lighting and sound. In a typical year, CMC Theatre showcases three to four performances. Click to view our archive of past productions.
