Transfer Guide: Theatre

This guide is intended to assist students who plan to transfer to St. Ambrose University and pursue a degree in Theatre. Use this guide with an EICCD A.A. Graduation Worksheet to select your courses. Click here for additional information about the theatre major

Note: This document was accurate on the date it was prepared but may not reflect subsequent changes by SAU or the colleges of EICCD. For this reason this document should be used as a guide only and should not replace consultation with your community college advisor or SAU advisor.

Transferring with a degree: Students who transfer to St. Ambrose with an A.A. or A.S. degree from a college of EICCD will be admitted to SAU with junior status.

Transfer without a degree: Students who do not complete an associate degree prior to transfer will have their courses reviewed and accepted on a course-by-course basis.

Note:  It is recommended that as you select courses for your associate's degree, general education coursework should include a philosophy course. SAU also has a Health/Physical Education graduation requirement which can be met by completing PEH:109 Personal Wellness.

Foreign Language: SAU's foreign language requirement can be met by 3 years of study of the same foreign language in high school or by demonstrating competency through the second semester of a foreign language at the college level (complete 2 semesters of the same foreign language). American Sign Language may fulfill this requirement.
