About the Program

The emphasis of the online Master of Arts in Dance Studies at Texas Tech University is to prepare the dance educator and scholar. This program offers investigation into a range of disciplinary practices and includes in-depth study of dance histories, arts advocacy, pedagogies, and critical reading and writing. Students also investigate movement practices in the contexts of choreography, anatomy and kinesiology, somatic practices, and collaboration.

This program prepares students to:

  • engage in rigorous investigation of dance in diverse artistic, cultural, and educational contexts;
  • synthesize and demonstrate the creative, physical, and intellectual skills needed to research, write about, discuss, teach, and practice dance at the graduate level;
  • distinguish and analyze individual areas of interest relative to the student’s professional goals in the form of a thesis project.
