Mission Statement

It is our purpose to provide our students with an exciting and challenging 
experience in theatre while attending Mineral Area College. Our intent is to 
enroll the students in the proper classes to ensure he/she will graduate 
with an Associate of Arts degree, emphasis in Theatre.

While obtaining this degree, the student will be preparing to complete his/her 
four year degree or enter into the world of professional work. We will do 
everything in our power to see the student proceed to a higher level, not only
in their career, but also in life, by attending Mineral Area College.
