International candidates must comply with all application procedures and deadlines, including meeting English-language proficiencies, as outlined by the University of Utah’s International Admissions Office

Graduation Requirements

  • All courses counted toward the degree must be completed with a C- or better.
  • In addition, all School of Dance courses must be completed with a B- or better (one exception is possible, but will result in a faculty review that could result in dismissal from the program).

Graduate Projects

These courses are independent Study courses proposed by students. Each of these course numbers may be taken four times for credit. Graduate Projects beyond the required 9 credit hours (3 courses) may be taken as electives. Students are encouraged to enroll in Graduate Porjects during the summer, which will allow more time for Thesis work in the 2nd year.

Elective Courses

To fulfill elective requirements, students may opt to enroll in graduate courses in Ballet, Modern Dance, or other programs on campus. We encourage students to pursue graduate Certificates (i.e., Gender Studies Certificate, Screendance Certificate, etc.) that might broaden and inform students’ research interests.
