Dance Degree Options

For those students interested in pursuing a degree in dance, the Bachelor of Arts in Dance and the Dance Minor offer a broad, liberal arts approach to the study of dance. With an emphasis on the how and why of dance, Dance Majors/Minors immerse themselves in a holistic program exploring not only a variety of dance styles and techniques, but also areas of dance theory and creative practice relative to choreography, movement analysis, dance science, history, education, culture, and somatic studies. Students are encouraged to explore creative interests through individualized study and because of our small class sizes, receive personal mentoring and attention to facilitate their unique educational journey. Additionally, our degrees are designed to support students working towards a second major and/or supplemental coursework relative to other areas of interest. Our degrees prepare students for employment, graduate degrees, and specialized certification programs in areas such as performance, choreography, production, arts management/administration, movement therapy, and various areas of research and scholarship.
