Achievement and Quality: Higher Education in the Arts

Basic Competency Index By Discipline and Specialization -- Undergraduate Degrees

Dance

A list of specializations for baccalaureate degrees in dance follows, with each linked to a parallel downloadable PDF enumerating detailed competencies for that specialization. In this way, users of these resources may download only the specific information of interest.

Please note: The lists of competencies are derived from accreditation standards for the professional and liberal arts undergraduate degrees in dance.

Essential Note: Competencies provided for each specialization are excerpts from the Handbook for the arts discipline specified. Items in each set of competencies indicate the content and natures of the competencies expected of those graduating with the specified degree, or recommendations for competency development.

Only the Handbook in its entirety contains all standards and guidelines applicable to and used by all phases of NASAD, NASD, NASM, or NAST membership reviews.

In the competencies texts for each specialization, “H.” indicates the location of the excerpted text in the Handbook; the term “(All)” indicates standards applicable to all professional or liberal arts undergraduate degrees in the specified field including the specialization; “([Area of Specialization])” indicates specific standards for that major.
