When students earn a degree in the College of Arts and Sciences, not only have they majored in an area in which they are passionate, but they have also developed skills in a variety of topics that qualify them for jobs both related and unrelated to their major. Thus earning a BA, BFA, or MFA in Dance puts students on the path to a position in the arts field and also helps make them a desirable candidate for any position that requires proficiency in:

  • written and oral communication
  • critical thinking
  • analytical reasoning
  • research and organizational skills
  • collaborative problem-solving
  • project management
  • creative expression
  • improvisation
