All Bachelor of Music Concentrations Require the Following:
General Education Requirements (41 hours)
Music Core Curriculum (26 hours)
All music majors must take class piano or private piano instruction until they pass the piano proficiency examination prescribed by their degree programs. Students should see their advisors for details.
All music majors and minors are required to participate in jury examinations in their primary performing areas. Non-music majors registered for private lessons may be required to perform a jury examination at the discretion of the instructor. Jury examinations are held to measure the student’s progress at the conclusion of each semester. Those students who have presented and passed their senior recitals during the semester may be excused from jury examinations.
Undergraduate Music majors must pass a upper-division jury to qualify for applied music study at the MUAP 3000 level. A Music major must take his or her upper-division jury no later than the end of the sixth semester and if not passing must take an upper-division jury again the next semester. A third attempt must be accompanied by extraordinary circumstances and must carry the approval of the studio teacher and director of the School of Music.
NOTE: Sixteen (16) hours of ensemble participation are required, but only fourteen (14) of those hours may be counted toward degree requirements; the remaining two hours may be taken for zero (0) credit.
