Theatre Program Description

Accepting Applications for Autumn 2021

The Theatre Program at Hocking College is committed to providing students with extensive practical and professional knowledge pertinent and responsive to the dynamic fields of employment in all areas of theatre. The faculty provide students with sufficient depth and hands-on experience to allow those interested in both live performance and theatre technology to engage in complex problem solving, physical and verbal communication, project management, and leadership through coursework and experiences in theatre arts.

The curriculum focuses on preparing students for work at the community or regional theatre level upon graduation, or to transfer into a 4-year bachelor’s degree program. Students will learn skills that are universal and transferrable, including script analysis, critical thinking, active listening, and teamwork as well as industry-specific skills such as acting, stage management, and stagecraft. The program and faculty prepare students to be competitive for entry level positions by requiring practicum work in acting and in a variety of backstage trades. Graduates of this program will possess strong skills in problem solving, independent learning, project management and verbal and written communication.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are statements of what a student will be able to do when they have completed a program. They represent the knowledge and skills a program has determined are most important for students to gain from that program and include both the Success Skills (institutional outcomes) and Program Outcomes. SLOs are specific and measurable so the program can accurately assess the degree to which students have achieved each outcome, and they align with college and institution mission and values. Data on the achievement of SLOs is used to make improvements in the program and increase student success.
