|Description:||The focus of the MA program is to foster the understanding of dance in its cultural, intellectual and social contexts, whereas the MFA program is a studio-intensive program centred on research in contemporary choreography and dance dramaturgy within diverse theatrical dance events.
Established in 1976, the MA in Dance is a five-term program. Students have access to courses in other disciplines such as Music, Anthropology, Visual Arts, English and History. In addition, there is a combined three-year program that leads to both the MA and MBA degree. Our combined emphasis on theoretical and practical approaches to dance is a strength of our program and graduates may be found working in a variety of fields including community, production, therapy, teaching, administrative and archival positions.
