CUNY Hunter College
Arnhold Graduate Dance Education Programs
The 5-Year BA/MA Dance Education Degree is designed to attract highly motivated students who are interested in a career in dance education and who wish to prepare themselves with a solid liberal arts undergraduate degree and certification to teach. Candidates will demonstrate potential for growth in dance artistry (technique, improvisation, choreography and performance), as well as academic success. The 5-year BA/MA program allows students to complete both their undergraduate and graduate degrees in Dance Education through a consolidated plan of study.
The MA in Dance Education program prepares dance artist/educators for the demands of teaching the history, culture, and practice of dance in Pre-K-12 curricula and to provide students with the course work required for professional certification for dance teaching in New York State. This program offers three tracks of study:
TRACK 1: Applicants must have a liberal arts bachelor's degree with a minimum of 34 credits in dance that satisfies the general education requirements in the Graduate School of Education at Hunter College.
TRACK 2: Applicants must have initial K-12 certification in Dance from New York State.
TRACK 3: Applicants must have initial or permanent/professional certification in a field other than dance and a minimum of 34 credits in dance.
