Program Spotlight: Master of Arts in Teaching Performing Arts


The Master of Arts in Teaching Performing Arts prepares students for South Carolina licensure in public schools while encouraging them to develop their own artist pursuits. Charleston’s world renowned arts community provides the perfect opportunity for students to network and intern with arts professionals and educators alike.  The program continued to grow and develop this past year with the addition of an exciting new theatre concentration. The new concentration targets students who received their undergraduate degrees in theatre or possess equivalent relevant experience. The program now offers two concentration (choral music and theatre) but plans are in the work to add a third dance component. Students have participated in the Spoleto USA Festival, the College’s concert series and interned at some of Charleston’s oldest historic (and haunted!) theatre. Upon gradution from the program, students are well equipped to teach PreK – 12 arts classes in South Carolina public schools.
