Austin Community College Drama Department is offering a new two-year degree that will give students the opportunity to get hands-on training in technical theater to join Austin’s creative sector. ACC will train the next generation of professional technicians and designers for the local performing arts community.
The Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Technical Theater offers students a unique alternative for specialized training. Our immersive design, using practical, project-based coursework and apprenticeship programming, primes students for immediate employment as professional stagehands, stage carpenters and electricians, lighting programmers, live media specialists, makeup artists, costume technicians and stage managers.
ACC OFFERS TWO SPECIALIZATIONS: - MAKEUP ARTISTRY AND COSTUME TECHNOLOGY
- SCENIC CONSTRUCTION, LIGHTING & MEDIA TECHNOLOGY
In addition, there is also the option to obtain a certificate(s), for those looking to enhance their own skills, but who may not necessarily be interested in pursuing a degree at this time. Currently, certificates are offered in the following areas:
- Costume Technology
- Makeup Artistry
- Scenic Construction
- Lighting & Media Technology
