About

About the Program

Dance is a transfer program housed in the Communication Arts, Humanities and Fine Arts division. Transfer programs are for students who plan to continue their education at a four-year college or university to earn a bachelor’s degree. Some students take dance courses to fulfill the fine arts requirement for a transfer degree; others take dance courses as part of a plan to major in dance. Many students also take dance courses as electives.

If You Plan to Transfer

Many students transfer to the University of Illinois, Columbia College and other schools to further their degrees in dance, dance therapy or dance education. This program will help students solidify their foundation in dance. It will also be helpful for musical theater majors, physical education teachers and others who wish to study or teach dance.
