University Majors

San Francisco State University
Dance B.A.

The focus of the Dance program in the School of Theatre and Dance is to study dance as an art form. The Bachelor of Arts in Dance provides professional preparation in dance and an opportunity to study dance performance, choreography, teaching, and dance theory. The goal of the program is to help students develop strong foundational skills and knowledge necessary for a variety of professional careers. SF State dancers have established their own companies, performed with professional companies, developed careers in K-12 education or supplemented their education for work in private dance or Pilates studios. Graduates have also successfully completed graduate dance studies at major institutions. Students with a major other than dance should investigate both the Minor in Dance and the Minor in World Music and Dance.

The B.A. is organized into three components: Core, Dance Technique, and Emphasis Electives. Majors must complete a 17-unit core covering basic studies, the body as instrument, and aesthetics and history. Choices are available in the core to gear the student toward their chosen emphasis.
