Introduction

The Department of Music provides many opportunities to students who wish to study music within a strong liberal arts curriculum. We foster creative endeavor and critical inquiry through courses, ensembles, and lessons on instruments or voice that explore music from a variety of perspectives. The department offers both the bachelor of arts (B.A.) and the bachelor of music (B.Mus.) degrees for students majoring in music, and a minor in music for students majoring in other fields. The department also offers many courses and performance opportunities to undergraduates majoring in fields other than music.

Admission

Students are admitted to the B.A. or B.Mus. programs through the regular admissions process established by the University. Prospective students intending to major in music are urged to contact the Department of Music for an audition during the year prior to their anticipated enrollment in order to strengthen their application credentials and to compete for scholarships offered by the department, including the prestigious William R. Kenan Jr. Music Scholarship.

Music Major, B.A.

The B.A. requires at least 33 credit hours in music and at least 75 outside the major, with 120 total credit hours in the degree. Given the ample opportunity to explore the breadth of the University's course offerings, many B.A. candidates seek minors in other fields or take on a second major.

Core Requirements

Additional Requirements

Students may receive no more than 45 credit hours in music and must complete a minimum of 75 hours of coursework outside music, including all General Education requirements.

  • The remaining six hours are to be taken from other MUSC courses (which may include individual lessons or ensembles) subject to prerequisites and other admissions requirements.

Individual and Group Lessons

Instruction for academic credit in keyboard, woodwind, brass, percussion, string instruments, and in voice is available to all University students. All lessons are normally offered each semester and are subject to admission and other requirements being met. Group lessons may also be available on selected instruments and in voice.

Studio assignments are based on instructor availability with preference given to music majors (B.A. and B.Mus.). Fees are charged for lessons based on an annual schedule published by the department. Music lesson fees are to be paid during the registration period; if fees remain unpaid, lessons will be discontinued.

All students wishing to enroll for lessons must first gain the permission of the appropriate area head to register (see the Department of Music's Web site for current information); this will involve an audition. Once permission has been granted, the registration process is handled by the Department of Music's registrar, who is also responsible for procedures leading to billing and the formal assignment to a teacher.

B.Mus. students whose primary focus is composition (and whether or not choosing an emphasis in composition) will fulfill the Individual Lessons core requirement by taking MUSC 166, three semesters of MUSC 266, and two hours of MUSC 100–107 or 200–207.

MUSC 100–107 may be repeated for credit to a maximum of eight hours; MUSC 200–207 may be repeated for credit to a maximum of 16 hours; MUSC 266 may be repeated for credit to a maximum of 18 hours; MUSC 300–306 may be repeated for credit for a degree to a maximum of six hours.

Ensembles

A variety of department ensembles under MUSC 211–213 are open to all students by audition. Each carries one credit hour per semester and may be repeated for credit.

B.A. candidates majoring in music must accrue four credit hours in ensembles drawn from MUSC 211 and/or 212. B.Mus. candidates must accrue eight credit hours chosen from MUSC 211 and/or 212, at least five of which must be from MUSC 211.

B.A. candidates majoring in music may count no more than three additional hours from MUSC 211–213 towards their degree for music or general elective credit; candidates for the B.Mus. may count no more than six additional hours from MUSC 211–213 towards their degree for music or general elective credit.

B.A. students whose primary instrument is piano will normally fulfill the ensemble requirement by taking one semester of large ensemble (MUSC 211) in addition to the three-semester piano ensemble sequence (Piano Ensemble I: Piano Duet; Piano Ensemble II: Vocal Accompanying; Piano Ensemble II: Instrumental Accompanying).

B.Mus. students whose primary instrument is piano will normally take at least one semester of large ensemble (MUSC 211) and the three-semester piano ensemble sequence (Piano Ensemble I: Piano Duet; Piano Ensemble II: Vocal Accompanying; Piano Ensemble II: Instrumental Accompanying). The rest of the ensemble requirement will be fulfilled by way of additional semesters of MUSC 211 (which may include Collaborative Piano) or MUSC 214.

Students should check with the appropriate ensemble director for more information concerning requirements and procedures for the auditions, which are typically held during the first week of each semester. Ensemble directors are listed on the department Web site. The department offers the following ensembles, most of which meet the ensemble requirement for the music major:

Further information on courses, undergraduate research opportunities, the honors program, careers, and graduate schools may be obtained from the department's Web site.

Special Opportunities

Honors in Music

Students interested in becoming candidates for a degree with honors in music should read the regulations governing departmental honors in the College of Arts and Sciences, found in the section "Undergraduate Honors" in the front of this bulletin, and should consult the honors advisor of the department toward the end of the sophomore year.
