The dance major or minor experiences dance as a cultural endeavor in the
liberal arts tradition. This program prepares the student to dance and
perform in a variety of settings and combines the discipline of dance
with other areas of study. One credit dance technique courses (111,
112, 113, 211, 212, 213, 311, 312 and 313) may be counted toward the
physical education requirement. If the student elects this option, the
course will carry no credit and will be graded on a pass/fail basis.
Courses taken to fulfill the physical education requirement cannot apply
to the dance minor.
