Requirements for a Minor in Dance

The minor in dance consists of a minimum of 15 credit hours. The first two years of the dance minor consist of two credits chosen from two dance or related activity courses. A student can meet this requirement with the same two activity courses required for graduation in the general requirements if the activity credits are in dance or a related activity course. The second two years of the dance minor consist of a minimum of nine credits from core courses (THE 315, 325, and 435), and four to six credits from an electives list.
