Dance Performance (54 hours) prepares students with knowledge and performance skills needed to pursue graduate-level study and a career in dance performance or dance pedagogy. In addition to studies in modern dance, jazz dance, and ballet, students also take courses in dance theory and in related areas of the arts and sciences. See Dance Performance major requirements [PDF].
Dance Business (51 hours) prepares students to be strong dancers and dance teachers and gives them the business background needed to run their own dance studio or work in an administrative role in a non-profit dance company. In addition to taking courses in dance performance and dance theory, students choose either the business administration or non-profit business track and complete 18 hours in business courses pertinent to their track. See Dance Business major requirements [PDF].
Complementary Dance Major (33 hours) is designed for students who wish to combine dance with another academic major to pursue a career goal of their choice that is not addressed by the Dance Performance or Dance Business majors. See Complementary Dance major requirements [PDF].
