Mission of The Bachelor of Arts Program

In support of the mission of the University to enhance the liberal arts and prepare students for careers and positions of leadership, the undergraduate programs in dance foster the development of women and men as dance artists and educators. These programs emphasize a comprehensive practical and theoretical education for all dance majors, differing only in the student‘s choice of professional career alternatives. The Department of Dance offers the Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance with two options for study:

 1.      The Dance Studies option is designed to prepare students to pursue performance- related careers, advanced degrees in dance, teaching in settings other than public schools where certification is not required, or careers in arts advocacy, management, or programming.

 2.      The Dance Education option leads to Texas Grade 8-12 Dance Certification. Designed to prepare dance educators for secondary public schools, this option requires the same dance major courses as the Dance Studies option and includes a core of professional education courses required by TWU and the Texas Education Agency.
