Requirements Dance Minor

Students majoring in a wide variety of disciplines elect to pursue a minor in Dance. The Dance program is designed to expose students to dance as an investigative, expressive, and collaborative field of study through rigorous practical and theoretical applications. Total credits required for the minor is 18.


Before declaring the dance minor, students must be enrolled in at least one studio course. There is a general progression of study within the program and students should refer to individual course descriptions for specific prerequisites.

In order to attain the Dance minor, students must complete 18 credits of academic coursework. No DANC course graded C- or lower may count towards the minor. Note that a student may not use the same course to satisfy more than one requirement. For instance, a student may use DANC 1400 (The Art of Dance) to satisfy either an elective requirement or a critical studies requirement, but not both.
