Master of Arts in Dance Education
University of Northern Colorado

Program Details

This online MA in Dance Education will prepare you to teach dance and offers two different curriculum tracks.  One pathway leads to teaching licensure and the other path is for those who already have a teaching license or those who want to teach outside of the school environment.  Both programs will enable you develop theoretical knowledge, build teaching strategies and develop dance skills.  This program is predominantly online, but does have summer workshops on campus.  Coursework usually involves:

  • Dance history
  • Curriculum & assessment design
  • Popular dance forms


  • A two-week on campus session per two summers is required
  • Bachelor's degree or higher
  • 3.0 GPA or higher
  • Official transcripts
  • May require additional materials
