Most dance courses are co-listed in both the Performing Arts Department and the Physical Education Department. Students can choose to take courses for Dance or PE credit, which may be applied to degree and/or transfer programs.
Although PCC does not offer a degree in dance, dance courses are lower division collegiate courses that transfer to a four-year college or university. Dance courses may transfer as:
- elective credits
- program requirement credits
- and/or graduation requirements for the receiving institution
Students who wish to transfer to a four-year institution to study Dance should contact Heidi Dyer for advising upon admission to PCC. Students are also encouraged to check with the receiving institution, your PCC academic advisor and the University Transfer website for the most accurate and timely transfer requirement information.
