HOFSTRA UNIVERSITY

THE DANCE B.A. MAJOR

AN 8-SEMESTER STUDY GRID    

This is simply an example of what 8 semesters might look like for incoming First-Year students. If you declare your major later, or are a Transfer Student, your grid will look considerably different. Your choices may vary. Some DNCE courses fulfill more than one requirement such as a Cross Cultural or Interdisciplinary Studies Core Distribution, opening up more space. Up to 6 credits of Core Distribution credits may be taken during Study Abroad. Students are required to meet with a Dance Department advisor at least once every semester.

Notes

For more information and to meet your faculty, visit our Department website at https://www.hofstra.edu/dance Some Dance courses (AP/IB/Transfer) taken prior to Hofstra can count toward the major. Non-Dance courses taken prior to your first year can count toward general education requirements or elective credits, whether taken at Hofstra or transferred in. NOTES * You are not required to take Summer or January courses (for which there is no financial aid). You can complete your Dance BA degree of 124 credits within 8 semesters.
