Undergraduate Program

Dance Cognate and Minor in Dance

The Dance Cognate is an 18 hour course of study connected to a Theatre Concentration in the Department of Speech and Theatre. The cognate is designed to provide students with diverse experiences in dance, including studio technique, creative studies and dance history and theory. Students pursuing a cognate are typically preparing for performance careers, graduate school, or teaching.

The Minor in Dance is an 18 hour course of study that emphasizes cultural, social and historical aspects of dance.

Students who are interested in either the Dance Cognate or the Minor in Dance should meet with the Program Director at the outset of their studies to plan their program of study.
