Students currently enrolled in a BA program with a declared major in Dance Studies, Music or Theatre are eligible to apply for enrollment in the Professional Performance Certificate program.  Audition or portfolio review required. The certificate is designed to be an addition to the major; therefore credit hours earned as part of the certificate may count toward the 124 hour graduation requirement but may not count toward the corresponding major.
