Theatre Careers and Jobs

There are a number of directions you can go with a theatre degree from Colorado Mountain College.

With your CMC theatre degree, you can expect to qualify for jobs such as lighting and sound technicians, stage manager or actor. You might also possibly direct at the community-based theatrical level.

The increase of  independent and foreign films and the advent of web-based movies is expected to increase employment opportunities for actors, producers and directors. Job growth is predicted to grow by 11 percent during the 2006-2016 decade, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

As in many fields, your career prospects will expand with higher levels of education. Your Associate of Arts degree can be your foundation for transfer to a four-year college or university. CMC is part of the Colorado State Guaranteed General Education Curriculum, which guarantees the transfer of your A.A. degree to public four-year colleges and universities in Colorado. Please contact us regarding specific transfer agreements with four-year theatre programs in Colorado.

Besides the obvious career and education choices, the well-rounded theatre education at CMC enhances one's self-presentation and communication skills, a plus for any career direction and for life itself.
