See Music in the Programs of Study and Courses for Liberal Arts and Sciences Students section for bachelor of arts (B.A.) program information.
The bachelor of music (B.M.) 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 in concentration must be made with the approval of the department. All students in the bachelor of music program must pass a piano proficiency examination by the end of the second year of study. Students in the music education concentration are required to pass the piano proficiency examination as part of acceptance into the Music Education Professional Sequence.
The course (07:701:100) Music Assembly must be successfully completed in each semester of full-time enrollment with the exception of the semester in which music education majors are enrolled in Clinical Practice II (student teaching). Students who earn an
unsatisfactory grade in Music Assembly in any semester will not be
allowed to schedule a senior recital or register for Clinical Practice II. All bachelor of music students are also expected to perform in Music Assembly at least once a year after the first year.
Students in the music education concentration
all degree requirements
before the Clinical Practice II semester. In
addition, students may not be registered for any other courses during the
semester in which they participate in Clinical Practice II unless preapproved by the coordinator of field placements.
