Dance Your Way to Your BFA
Southern Miss Dance offers two Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree options:
Performance & Choreography
Dance Education with K-12 Licensure
Both courses of study are studio-based and performance-intensive. Students learn how to create dances, teach dance, and develop their own artistry.
Dance faculty closely mentor students through the program, helping them determine and realize their career paths. Students are provided opportunities for internships which link their studies with the professional world. Individualized instruction is a hallmark of our program and guides students as they explore dance from both historical and contemporary perspectives.
USM Dance is housed in the School of Performing and Visual Arts, visit our School's site for our mission, upcoming performances, and other exciting news.
