Program of Study

Each degree in the Graduate Dance Program features four distinct areas of study. Students take courses in both degree programs to enhance their experience of the multidisciplinary curriculum. 

The MFA in Dance uses a year-round academic calendar that favors working adults and highly motivated professionals seeking to substantiate their portfolio as they develop their professional careers with a majority of the practical/performance courses offered during January and June. Our cohorts begin every year in June and take courses for 4 weeks.

We then follow the Undergraduate Calendar for Fall, Jan Term and Spring terms.
