A degree in drama or music gives graduates the opportunity to combine their creative talents with the practical aspects of self-promotion and arts management. This mix of disciplines is a good preparation for the world of artistic performance.
People who pursue careers in the performing arts are generally creative, expressive individuals who are passionate about their craft.
Dramatic experience provides insights into the complex motivation for human behavior. Students interested in acting can complete an associate degree or begin studies to transfer to a baccalaureate program. Drama courses can also be an important supplement for those who plan to major in the humanities or social sciences.
