Undergraduate students must complete an immersion—a concentration of three courses in a particular area. These courses support deeper learning within a focus area and are used to meet RIT’s general education requirements. In many cases, an immersion can lead to a minor with the addition of two courses. However, not all minors have a corresponding immersion, and vice versa.
The Dance immersion provides students with an overview of dance by exploring its contemporary applications through experiential and academic methods. Students will have the opportunity to actively experience, analyze, and participate in dance as an art form, exploration of movement, and as a means of creative and personal expression. The immersion requires students to take a course focusing on World Dance & Culture to provide cultural perspectives, and examine dance traditions and movement through historical, critical, artistic, and socio-cultural contexts.
