About

The School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies offers a Master of Fine Arts degree in Dance at University of Maryland, encompassing choreography, performance, dance and technology, scholarly research, and pedagogy. 

Overview

Aimed primarily at modern or contemporary dancers with a high skill level and background in creating and performing at a professional level, opportunities abound in the creation of cross-disciplinary projects, presenting choreography in formal and informal settings throughout the three years, performing in guest artist and faculty works, presenting academic work at conferences and symposia, and participating in community-based performance and scholarly events.

The Dance program at University of Maryland culminates with a thesis: an original choreographed and performed creative project and a written thesis. The third year also includes an off-campus internship with a professional arts organization, research venue, agency, company, or school.
