Advising NotesPlease Read: This major guide is a list of all possible major courses offered in the Virginia Community College System. Not all courses may be offered at your community college, and you are not required to complete all these courses in order to transfer. Rather, it’s designed to help you meet JMU major requirements before you transfer, and be better prepared to progress through the major once you arrive at JMU. Please be sure to read the advising notes for additional information on the major.
1. An audition is required for all concentrations; see the departmental web site (link below) for information.
2. Because of the sequencing of coursework, students who transfer with an appropriate associate's degree should expect to spend approximately three years at JMU to complete this major, unless they have a solid collection of transfer credits in theatre or dance.
3. Theatre and Dance majors earn a B.A. degree. The B.A. requires intermediate proficiency in a foreign language and a philosophy course. Please note that JMU does not grant transfer credit for the 101-102 levels of a foreign language that a student studied for two or more years in high school.
