Build Your Future in Stage Management
The Stage Management Certificate is designed to prepare the student for occupational competency as a Stage Manager in educational, community and resident theatre venues as well as theme park, television and motion picture studios. Stage Managers, unlike television or film directors, who document their product with cameras, make sure that the cast and crew give a consistently strong live performance.

Fullerton College is one of the greatest
Character Artist at MGA Entertainment
“I’ve recently become a Character Artist at MGA Entertainment and I owe it all to the Digital Arts CTE program at Fullerton College. Every single class I took helped me build a portfolio that was competitive enough to land me a job where all of my coworkers come from private colleges, and I think that’s pretty cool. Not only are the classes very useful but the professors that teach them are as well. They have endless amounts of knowledge and experience in their fields and are super eager to help their students. I am very proud and grateful to have been a part of the CTE program and I can’t wait to see where I go in the future thanks to Fullerton College.”
