Jan Van Dyke, professor in the School of Music, Theatre and Dance and former head of the Department of Dance, was interviewed by Dance Magazine about the merits of obtaining an MFA in Dance.

She noted that 30 years ago, an advanced degree wasn’t needed to teach in academia, as paraphrased by the article.

Van Dyke also mentioned that nowadays, many students consider grad school because an MFA or another terminal degree is required for most university teaching positions.
