B.A. in Dance

The dance major at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences offers an extremely low student-faculty ratio with professors who have a wide variety of backgrounds and academic/research expertise.

This degree program will help students develop in several areas: technical proficiency, historical and cultural perspectives, personal artistry, and production skills. The major will also provide students with an understanding of how dance fits into a larger global context through courses in dance history, global perspectives on dance, and contemporary dance techniques. Students in the major will learn the behind-the-scenes process of putting a show together in a technical theatre class and will get the opportunity todevelop their own unique voice as artists in choreography and dance composition courses.

The dance major is offered during the day and evening on NSU's main campus.
