Although the graduate Dance program of Case Western Reserve University is geared toward the Master of Fine Arts degree, all graduate students begin in the MA program.


Advancement to the MFA program occurs upon faculty recommendation to the Dean of Graduate Studies in the third semester. The course work for the MA may be similar to that for the Master of Fine Arts, enhanced by related studies in theater and other departments. The candidate’s program of study will be designed by the primary dance faculty. The School of Graduate Studies and the Department of Dance, in accordance with the Ohio Department of Higher Education, requires a minimum grade point average of 3.0.

Graduates of the Dance program of Case Western Reserve University are currently employed as modern dance company members (regionally and nationally), company directors/choreographers, and dance production managers, and as teachers, program directors, and administrators in colleges and universities. Others have transitioned into such disciplines as physical therapy and massage therapies.
