What graduate options are offered by the School of Dance?
The School of Dance offers both a Master of Arts in Community Dance and a Graduate Certificate in Community Dance. The M.A. in Community Dance requires a minimum of 30 credit hours.
The Graduate Certificate is a 12 credit-hour program, which can be completed by degree-seeking students in a graduate program at Ohio University. This includes, but is not exclusive to, students enrolled in the Master of Arts Administration. https://www.catalogs.ohio.edu/preview_program.php?catoid=64&poid=18786&returnto=5151
We welcome all graduate students with an interest in dance to contact us about opportunities to participate in our classes and events. Email the Graduate Chair, Dr. Tresa Randall: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students in the M.A. in Community Dance can also complete the Graduate Certificate in Arts Administration, which will expand their knowledge and skills in grant writing, fundraising, and non-profit administration. Since there is some curricular overlap in these two programs, students could complete both the M.A in Community Dance and the Graduate Certificate in Arts Administration in 36 credit hours. https://www.ohio.edu/fine-arts/certificates/arts-administration-certificate
