Modern BFA in Dance Teaching 

Modern BFA in Dance Teaching Kindergarten – Twelfth Grade Licensure Program Description: 

The BFA in Dance Teaching is a four-year professional degree that prepares students to teach theatre in a variety of dynamic and challenging learning environments. Here in the College of Fine Arts, we are committed to the teaching and learning of all humans in our educational and community spaces. The purpose of the BFA Dance Teaching Kindergarten – Twelfth (K-12) Grade Licensure Program is to prepare elementary, junior high, middle school, and high school dance educators. Competent K-12 dance teaching requires both in-depth knowledge of subject matter (dance) and skill in applying educational concepts and principles that are developmentally appropriate. The College of Education’s Urban Institute for Teacher Education (UITE) oversees teacher licensure at the University of Utah. UITE is located in SAEC 2264. Note: Licensing is dictated by specific deadlines.

Students pursuing an educator license should contact the UITE as soon as possible to learn about deadlines, background check requirements, and student teaching. https://uite.utah.edu/students/advising/ or 801-581-6818.
