Life After Graduation
After graduating from Lang, dance students have gone on to pursue advanced studies in Choreography and Performance, Performance Studies, Critical Dance Studies, and other fields that explore theories of embodiment (Gender and Sexuality Studies, Critical Race Theory, Visual Studies). In addition, Lang alumni are pursuing vibrant careers in the following fields:
- Arts presenting
- Arts administration
- Arts writing
- Creative arts therapy
- Arts education
Students often attend Lang because they are interested in studying dance alongside other disciplines within the humanities and social sciences. Those students have pursued advanced studies in Writing, Psychology, Philosophy, and Social Work. They have pursued careers as teachers, environmental activists, and public health researchers.
