The Department of Theatre and Dance offers BA and BFA degrees in dance. Prospective majors should audition and meet with undergraduate advisor as early as possible. All dance courses have reading and writing requirements, attendance requirements, dance concert attendance requirements, and practical examinations. An audition is required for acceptance into the program.

For transfer students, course requirements may be adjusted based on placement auditions. If lower-level courses are waived, additional courses may be assigned. This policy applies to all majors.
