Mission Statement

The Department of Dance offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees in a research-intensive university setting. At the undergraduate level, we offer a liberal arts curriculum and professional preparation in choreography, performance, and dance education. At the graduate level, we offer an M.F.A. degree in choreography and several M.A. degrees, among them an online M.A. in Dance Education. All programs prepare students for further study and for the task of creating successful and productive lives as dance artists, educators, and scholars at the state, regional, national, and international levels.

The Department of Dance is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Dance. The Department's program leading to K–12 licensure (Standard Professional I) for public school teaching is accredited by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.


Admission to Dance Majors (B.A. and B.F.A.)

Admission for dance major programs in the Department of Dance is by audition only. All prospective dance majors must participate in a selective admission process. This includes students currently at UNCG who have not been accepted as majors in the Department. The audition process includes a written application, an audition class, a writing sample, and an interview. Application forms and details are available from the Department.
