Some background knowledge and experience in dance is seen as beneficial for prospective minor applicants, but not required.

Due to course sequencing and enrollment limitations (conflicts and some courses are not offered every year), students must have a minimum of four semesters available to complete the minor requirements. Students wishing to apply for the minor after the Spring semester of their sophomore year, must have one or more courses completed, or in progress.
