Undergraduate program

Undergraduate program usually include three degrees: Dance Minor, Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) and the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.).
The bachelor of fine arts (B.F.A.) and the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) prepare students for careers as dancers and choreographers; but the B.A. prepares students for careers in dance education, administration, and therapy and the B.F.A. needs extra work in performance or choreography.
