Music

The Department of Music offers the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music degrees. Considered a professional degree by the National Association of Schools of Music, the Bachelor of Music degree prepares students for graduate study in music performance, for professional careers as performers, and for careers as applied music teachers. Other potential jobs can be found in churches, commercial music business, arts administration, and some private schools.

The Department of Music works in cooperation with the College of Education to provide course offerings for music education degrees. Students in music education must audition for placement in the required applied lessons.

The Department of Music provides qualified and interested students, regardless of their major, with a variety of music experiences. Performance groups, such as the Marching Band, Symphonic Band, Concert Band, Campus Band, Orchestra, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, Chamber Choir, Concert Choir, Men’s Chorus, Women’s Chorus, University Singers, Gospel Choir, and various smaller music ensembles are available to all students. Many performance groups require a successful audition before admission. 

Students must comply with these requirements to be admitted to the BA or BM in Music:

  • Students must apply for admission.
  • They must successfully complete an instrumental or vocal audition. Information about the audition is available from the departmental office.

Once they are admitted to a degree program in music, students have to meet these requirements in order to graduate:

  • Students must earn a grade of C or higher in all music courses in order for those courses to count toward degree requirements.
  • Students taking private instruction (MUAP) must successfully complete auditions before enrollment and must concurrently enroll in MUSI 1000 Performance Attendance. Information is available from the departmental office.

In all Fine Arts curricula, electives may include six hours Basic ROTC or Advanced ROTC. In curricula that do not allow for six hours of electives, ROTC may be taken in lieu of required courses with approval of the departmental adviser. University core courses may not be replaced by Basic or Advanced ROTC.
