Antioch University Offers BA & MA Degree Programs to TOA Students

LOS ANGELES, CA – Theatre of Arts (TOA) is excited to announce the renewal of its articulation agreement with Antioch University Los Angeles (AULA), offering academic opportunities to TOA students and graduates to seamlessly transfer and apply credits already earned towards a Bachelor's degree program at AULA.

The agreement enables TOA students to transfer a minimum of 24 semester units towards AULA BA degree programs in either Liberal Studies or Applied Arts & Media. Qualified undergraduate students may also opt to fast-track into one of Antioch's Master’s programs, taking graduate courses that apply toward both the last quarter of student’s bachelor’s degree as well as the first quarter of a master’s degree.

Antioch University Los Angeles offers small, interactive classes, individualized advising, and a variety of flexible learning formats designed to accelerate students’ time to completion and transform their lives. In addition, AULA offers the possibility to earn academic credit for prior learning, independent studies and internships.

“We are thrilled to offer our conservatory students and graduates the ability to apply their Associates Degree credits towards advanced degrees at Antioch. The variety and comprehensiveness of Antioch's academic programs ensures a wide variety of exciting options for TOA students looking to broaden their intellectual horizons," said David Conolly, Director of Education at Theatre of Arts.

This agreement defines the transferability of TOA credits which meet AULA's Domains of Knowledge requirements. Within AULA's BA in Liberal Studies program, students may choose a major or minor concentration in areas such as Addiction Studies, Business and Management Studies, Creative Writing, Queer Studies, Psychology, Urban Studies, or an individualized concentration such as Acting and Dramatic Arts. Students opting for AULA's BA in Applied Arts & Media program will take additional fine arts courses that foster critical thinking about creative arts and media, and courses that offer skill development in leadership and business that are applicable to their career path.

“At AULA, we partner with a number of specialized regional colleges to help students continue their education in a highly supportive, individualized environment, and we’re proud to be teaming up with Theatre of Arts,” said Rosa Garza-Mourino, Undergraduate Studies Articulation Officer: “We welcome the unique perspective and artistry that TOA students bring when they transfer their credits to Antioch to continue their academic journey.”
