MAJOR REQUIREMENTS
First-Year Students

Students intending to major in music should begin the major music sequences in the first year. Failure to do so may mean an extra semester or year to complete the program.

Required first year courses are:

  • MUSI 111: Music Fundamentals I (2)
  • MUSI 113: Music Fundamentals II (2)
  • MUSI 120: Music and Culture (class size is limited) (4)

MUSI 111 and 113 are prerequisites to MUSI 124. All first-year students should register for MUSI 111 and 113. A placement test will be given during the first class meeting of MUSI 111. Based on the test outcome, students will be placed in either MUSI 124, 113 or retained in 111. MUSI 111 and 113 are half-semester courses.

MUSIC MAJOR DEGREES
General Requirements
  • Entrance Audition: To be admitted to a music major program, prospective students must audition for the music faculty.
  • Declaration of Major: Students interested in majoring in music should complete an academic program contract declaring a music major during their first semester of enrollment in the program. They will be assigned a music faculty advisor who will assure that the student receives help in exploring the various majors and in scheduling music study in the most efficient and economical manner. Majors can always be changed later. 
  • Ensemble Requirement: Music majors are required to participate every semester in one of the music ensembles specified in their major. (Exception: semesters involving study away and/or student teaching.) 
  • Keyboard Proficiency: Basic keyboard skills are required in all music majors (B.M., B.M.E., B.M.A., B.A.). Attainment of adequate keyboard skills is determined by successful completion (letter grade of C or better) in MUSI 122: Keyboarding II. 
  • Language Requirement: Vocal performance majors are required to take at least one year of language study (two regular semesters) in French or German (see department handbook).
  • Music Electives: MUSI 111, 113, 115, 116 may not count for music electives in a music major degree program. 
  • Grades and Grade Point Policy: Only grades of C or higher in music courses may be counted toward the major. Courses in which the student receives lower than a C must be repeated, unless the department authorizes substitute course work.
    Majors must maintain a 2.50 cumulative grade point average in academic music courses (private lessons and ensembles excluded) to remain in the program (see department handbook).
  • Music Major Assessment: Students pursuing Bachelor of Music (B.M.), Bachelor of Music Education (B.M.E.), Bachelor of Musical Arts (B.M.A.) or Bachelor of Arts in Music (B.A.) degrees will have their progress and potential assessed at the end of the first, sophomore, junior, and senior years. Assessments are made by the music faculty via progress reviews, juries, and public presentations. Outcomes are pass/fail; students who fail an assessment will not be allowed to continue in the music program (see department handbook).
