Minor Program

The Dance Minor is open to all undergraduate majors!

There is no audition required to be a Dance Minor. To declare the minor or receive more information, contact the Dance Minor Advisor.

The Dance Minor is organized to merge course work in three core areas. Students declaring the minor meet with the Dance Minor Advisor to plan courses in Theoretical Inquiry (can overlap with General Education requirements), Creative Process, and Movement Practice. The goal of this meeting is to understand the student's background in dance and interest in their particular major and career goals. Through this integrated approach to studying the art of dance, the student completing the minor will emerge with a broad perspective of the field.

The Dance Minor consists of a minimum of 16 units of dance course work. Students select two to three courses in each core area. See the Dance Minor Checklist below for specific courses of study.

Find the most current Dance course information at our Courses and Schedules page, or visit BuckeyeLink.

Application Procedures

To assist with scheduling and course planning, students declare the minor by making an appointment with the Dance Minor Advisor. In this 20-30 minute meeting, courses are selected from the Dance Minor Advising Sheet, the student completes the Dance Minor Profile Sheet, and the Dance Minor Advisor shares resources specific to Dance Minors.

Students are obliged to maintain an updated checklist of required and elective courses toward the minor, and file the Minor Program Form with their respective college/school offices according to graduation criteria with the assistance of the Dance Minor Advisor. 

For more info, contact the Dance Minor Advisor.
