University Majors

University of California, Santa Barbara
Dance B.A.

UCSB's Division of Dance offers two degrees, the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and the Bachelor of Arts (BA). Both programs are studio centered and emphasize performance and choreography. Both require daily classes in modern dance and ballet. Program coursework includes theoretical as well as technical aspects of dance, and allows for breadth of experience in related arts and sciences. The BFA degree is the more specialized and highly structured of the two programs. It is designed for students who aspire to professional performing or choreographic careers. Approximately 75 percent of the BFA student's undergraduate experience is in dance and related subjects. The BA degree offers a strong dance component within a liberal arts education.
The BA is less specialized, less structured, and has fewer major requirements than the BFA. The BA allows students to undertake coursework in related fields in order to prepare themselves for alternative dance careers such as dance therapy, dance administration, dance history, and dance education. Audition required. Contact the department at (805) 893-3241 to set up an audition time.
