Associate of Arts in Performing Arts

The student chooses a concentration in Music, Church Music, Theatre, or Musical Theatre.

The concentration in Theatre includes the following areas of study: Acting, Costume Design, Directing, Lighting Design, Scene Design, Stage or Theatre Management, and Theatre Technician.


Within the AA in Performing Arts, The Theatre Program maintains a 2 + 2 articulation agreement with Northwestern State University (NSU) allowing students who earn an Associate of Arts in Performing Arts at BPCC (Theatre or Musical Theatre concentrations) to transfer all credit hours designated by the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)PDF Filebetween BPCC and NSU toward completion of the Bachelor of Science in Theatre at NSU. Interested students should see the Dean or a Performing Arts Advisor for more information about this 2+2 agreement.
