The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Dance offers interdisciplinary pursuits of dance studies in dialogue with or congruent to concert dance education as applied to pedagogical systems, theorizations of performance practices, an analysis of movement and its implications in a variety of arenas, and the emerging relationships between dance and media. BA candidates are given a solid foundation in dance technique and a balanced approach to course work to facilitate the four concentrations in Teaching Dance Arts; Dance Studies; Body, Science, & Motion; and Dance & Media. The curriculum is comprehensive, forward thinking, and pragmatic in its approach to future studies and careers in dance related fields. It is non-performance based and has the flexibility to meet the needs of dance students, dance professionals seeking a degree, and those interested in pursuing a minor or double major in a related field.
