Honors Program

The Honors Program is designed to afford outstanding senior majors in dance an opportunity to undertake complex and sophisticated independent creative and scholarly projects sponsored by a dance faculty member.

These can include either an advanced-level choreography or a research thesis in dance studies, criticism and or theory resulting in a substantial written thesis, or a combination of the two. Advanced level and creative projects in dance performance, choreography, directing, and design must also include a significant written reflection.

During the second semester of their junior year, all dance majors are invited to consider application for honors. Students must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the major, have a faculty sponsor, and a project proposal. Decisions to admit students to the Honors Program are made by a joint committee of the dance faculty.

Interested students should complete an application available in the dance department.
