Liberal Arts - Dance A.A. Degree

The Dance degree option prepares students for transfer as dance majors to four year college and universities by having them complete a minimum of four college level courses. (DAN 131, DAN 132, Dan 201, DAN 202). The option provides students with a mastery and awareness of the craft of dance arts in theory and practice. Students will also experience the aesthetic value of dance as an art form. Students are required to engage in the study of technique, improvisation, composition, production and criticism. The option also provides students the opportunity to develop the ability to explore and extend their artistic, cognitive and psychomotor potential through movement skills.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why study the Liberal Arts?

A Liberal Arts education is a broad-based program of study that exposes students to the Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Mathematics, and Technology.  The study of the Liberal Arts empowers students for success in transfer and a career in the diverse, ever-changing 21st century workplace.  A Liberal Arts education equips students with invaluable employability skills including the ability to analyze and construct arguments, think critically, communicate effectively, and appreciate diverse cultures and perspectives.  The cross-cultural knowledge, problem solving, and research and information literacy skills prepare students for civic engagement, life-long learning, and professional success. 

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?

Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Competency in Algebra I may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or by completion of the appropriate course. Students must also have a grade of “C” or better in one year of high school laboratory science.

How long will it take to complete this degree?

Once students complete required developmental coursework (if any), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. Students may shorten the amount of degree completion time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.

Transfer Information

Our students transfer to 4-year colleges and universities around the globe. We’ve had students transfer to every state, including Alaska and Hawaii.

The Statewide Transfer Agreement for New Jersey ensures that students who earn an A.A. or A.S. degree at a community college will have those credits fully transferable to a New Jersey public four-year institution, will have completed half of the credits required for a basic four-year degree and will have completed all lower division general education requirements. In addition, articulation agreements are being worked out with institutions granting baccalaureate degrees to facilitate the transfer process. Students should discuss the transfer process with an advisor.

Are you interested in transferring to a school in New Jersey? You can use the tools at NJTransfer.org to see which of your MCC courses will transfer to a specific college.
