In our dance major, you’ll develop your individuality, creativity, dance knowledge, and technique while preparing for a career in dance, a related field, or graduate programs in dance education, dance/movement therapy, somatics, or similar studies.

You can combine dance with another major, such as psychology, to further prepare yourself for a career in dance education or therapy. Or, you can take courses in management and economics to prepare for a career as a dance studio owner.

Fieldwork and internships will provide you with the opportunity to explore your interests, work closely with a dance professional or institution, and gain valuable experience for your resume.
