Pathway to Theater Bachelor's Degree is Now Easier

Ariel View of Campus Paths at Minneapolis College

The pathway to a bachelor's degree has been made easier in Minneapolis College's AFA program in Theater. The Associate of Fine Arts Theater Arts Transfer Pathway (AFAP) offers students the opportunity to focus on gaining course credits that directly transfer to a Theater Arts bachelor's degree program at any one of the 7 universities within the Minnesota State system that offers the major:

  • Metropolitan State University: Theater, B.A.
  • Minnesota State University, Mankato: Theatre, B.A.
  • Theatre, B.S., Minnesota State University
  • Moorhead: Theatre Arts, B.A.
  • Southwest Minnesota State University: Theatre Arts, B.A.
  • St. Cloud State University: Theatre, B.A.
  • Winona State University: Theatre Arts, B.A.

The entire curriculum has been carefully designed to meet bachelor's degree program requirements for transfer students planning initial study at a Minnesota State college. Students planning to transfer outside of the Minnesota State System are advised to consult with their intended transfer institution to determine transferability of the courses in this curriculum.

Minneapolis College's AFAP in Theatre Arts will give you training in the basic skills necessary for creative expression in the performance and technical aspects of the theatre arts. The program integrates the artistic, technical and academic disciplines of theatre practice. You may choose an emphasis in acting, directing or technical theatre skills. You will also learn to interpret and understand global theatre history, as well as contemporary and classical dramatic literature.
