See Music in the Programs of Study and Courses for Liberal Arts Students section for bachelor of arts (B.A.) program information.
The bachelor of music (B.Mus.) program offers four areas of concentration: performance, jazz studies, composition, and music education. Students are admitted specifically to one of these four areas. Any change must be made with the approval of the department. All students in the bachelor of music program must pass a piano proficiency examination prior to graduation (students in the music education concentration must pass the piano proficiency examination prior to the beginning of the semester in which they fulfill the student teaching requirement). The course 07:701:100 Music Assembly must be passed during each semester of full-time enrollment; if a student has an unsatisfactory grade in any semester, he or she will not be allowed to schedule a senior recital or student teaching. Students are also expected to perform in Music Assembly at least once a year after the first year.
