University rank #201 (ARWU) , GA,
The Bachelor program in Dance at the University of Georgia enables dancers to develop technical proficiency and choreographic ability; explore the scientific, philosophical, and historical foundations of dance; consider the relationship of dance to other art forms; experience the power of dance as an educational tool; and encounter dance as a total theatre experience.

About

The Bachelor program in dance prepares its graduates to pursue careers as performers and choreographers for the concert and theater stage and for film, video and other media; dance educators in schools P-12; teachers in and owners of private studios; arts administrators and advocates; and dance therapists. The program instills in its graduates a resourcefulness which assists them in creating for themselves a means of livelihood in the economically challenging field of dance.

Students wishing to teach dance in Georgia's public and other accredited schools grades P-12 may participate in the Teacher Certification program. The Teacher Certification program is optional and students must complete an additional 24 credit hours (9 credits education, 3 kinesiology, and 12 student teaching) beyond the 120 hours required for the B.F.A. in Dance. The B.F.A. degree program, along with the 24 semester hours, fulfills all requirements for teacher certification by the Department of Education for the State of Georgia. Students from outside Georgia who wish to teach in the schools of their home states find that certification requirements vary little from state to state.

Accreditation

Officially accredited/recognized by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, University of Georgia (UGA) is a very large (enrollment range: 35,000-39,999 students) coeducational higher education institution.
