Program Overview

Toasts, tours, and teaching — the need for good storytelling is everywhere. And you can answer that call with our storytelling program. Our experienced instructors are here to help you master the art of storytelling while showcasing the skill’s universal themes and basic practices — as well as its educational, healing, and multicultural aspects.

While professional storytelling is an ideal occupation, the knowledge and ability to tell a well-crafted story may advance you in other areas. Upon completion of this program, you may use your new skills in fields like education, library science, the arts, human relations, law, mental health, business, prevention programs, the ministry, and interpretive roles at museums and parks.

Make it happen. Don't wait — start your storytelling journey today.

Students at any Maricopa Community College may need to complete courses at more than one of our colleges.
