Make your love of dance part of your college degree!

Are you an undergraduate Boston University student who dances five to 15 hours per week? Consider the dance minor for an artistic addition, career advancement, and verification of your commitment to dance. 


The dance minor at BU is a collaboration between the Department of Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance, and the College of Fine Arts. It is designed to enhance a student’s preparedness for a number of multidisciplinary fields, including dance aesthetics, dance history, movement education, musical theatre, and arts administration. 

For those who wish to pursue dance performance or choreography as a career, or who wish to apply to graduate programs in dance, the dance minor will serve as verification of their skill level and commitment to this field of study. In order to receive a minor in dance, students will be required to complete 20 credits in dance theory, history, composition, and studio and performance experiences.
