Student Learning Outcomes for Academic Programs
A.S. in Theatre: Acting Concentration
General Education Outcomes
A robust general education is founded on the knowledge, concepts, methods, and perspectives that students gain through the study of many academic disciplines. These disciplinary studies stimulate intellectual inquiry, global awareness, and cultural and artistic appreciation: they equip students to make informed judgments and remain engaged beyond the classroom. To that end, QCC promotes educational activities that allow students to demonstrate that they can:
- Communicate effectively in various forms
- Use analytical reasoning to identify issues or problems and evaluate evidence in order to make informed decisions
- Reason quantitatively as required in various fields of interest and in everyday life
- Apply information management and digital technology skills useful for academic research and lifelong learning
To support these institutional general education outcomes, the academic departments—through their programs—may also assess the ability of students to:
- Integrate knowledge and skills in the program of study
- Make ethical judgments while recognizing multiple perspectives, as appropriate in the program of study
- Work collaboratively to accomplish learning objectives
Approved by the Academic Senate on February 13, 2018.
upon completion of our program, graduates will be prepared to:
- Engage in the creation and execution of works of theatre.
- Analyze plays perceptively.
- Identify a broad selection of theatre repertory.
- Develop and defend informed responses to theatre.
Concentration-specific Outcomes (Acting):
upon completion of the concentration, graduates will be prepared to:
- Act (i.e., to project one's self believably in word and action into imaginary circumstances, evoked through improvisation or text).
- Employ the body and voice as an instrument for communication.
- Practice a technique for analyzing the tasks required in the performance of dramatic material.
