The M.A. in Dance is a 31-unit practice-oriented degree created to serve dance educators working primarily in secondary and community college settings. The M.A. functions as a form of continuing education and professional development for credentialed teachers. Because M.A. candidates are employed during the academic year, this low-residency program is designed to be completed during summer sessions and via distance learning experiences. The M.A. in Dance is run as a Special Sessions Program through the Universitys College of Continuing and Professional Education. The M.A. program of study consists of three intensive summer sessions of 9-12 units of coursework and the successful completion of comprehensive exams taken during and immediately following the third summer. The M.A. in Dance offers both studio and theory courses; it is designed to broaden and deepen dance knowledge and skills, including hands-on experience in dance concert production. All courses are designed to introduce new concepts and trigger deeper thought and analysis in the field of dance. All courses in the M.A. degree are at the graduate level and are offered only to graduate students.
