The Acting/Dance Studies Minor is designed for students who are interested in areas of performance – acting and/or dance – and who desire the opportunity to explore these areas through the prescribed course work of a minor.

Courses are appropriate for students who have little or no performance experience as well as those with a significant background in either acting or dance. Students may choose from a variety of possible combinations including courses in dance, acting and academic subjects.
