    The Bachelor of Science in Dance Science is for students with prior dance experience who are interested in careers in dance education or dance science. The degree's flexibility allows those interested in professional school after graduation the ability to fulfill their prerequisites and focus on the art and science of dance. Many students go on to study physical therapy, occupational therapy, or medicine. The educators who graduate from this program have the knowledge and skills to train dancers at the highest level while decreasing the prevalence of injury.

    The Dance Science program is designed to educate the full dancer through courses in dancer wellness and technique courses focused on proper biomechanics; technical courses in ballet, modern, jazz, and hip-hop; dance research, anatomy, nutrition, conditioning, injury prevention and care; and dance pedagogy, production, and composition.
