Entrance does not require experience or expertise in dance; however, an interview with dance faculty is required.
Courses in the somatic studies minor, while listed in dance, are not specifically directed toward artistic goals. The movement techniques taught in the minor are designed to increase self-awareness through a process of embodied inquiry.
The minor in somatic studies is not open to students in the B.A., B.F.A., or minor in dance.
Courses in the minor may not be counted toward the major, but may be used to satisfy preparation for the major and general education requirements, if applicable. A minimum of six upper division units must be completed in residence at San Diego State University.
