Performance Production

The Performance Production Department recommends that students plan their programs of study around the following sequence. The curricula presented below follow a generalized model, but each student’s program will be individualized based on placement testing, transfer credits and individual progress as the student advances. Stage Management students follow the same path as all PP students for the first two years, then shift to the Stage Management path in the first semester of the third year.

Students should refer to the model program that was in effect for the year and term of their entrance to Cornish. View archived catalogs and model programs.
