Degree and Degree Plans

Two degrees are offered in the field of music: Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Music. The degree Bachelor of Arts offers a broad and comprehensive course of study in the liberal arts. The degree Bachelor of Music offers a plan of specialization and the opportunity of attaining a high level of
accomplishment with majors in performance, composition, or a five-year music education program.

A student is admitted to candidacy for the degree of Bachelor of Music or Bachelor of Arts with a major in music only upon the approval of the Department of Music. Each student, with the aid of his/her adviser, will establish a degree plan best suited to his/her own abilities and ambitions in music. Each student’s degree plan must be reviewed by his/her adviser and approved by the Department of Music and the registrar by the end of the sophomore year. At this time, the student must make formal application to continue studies toward a degree in music. The sophomore year performance jury will determine upper division status and eligibility for the Bachelor of Music degree.

Requirements for All-Level Music Teacher Certification include the Bachelor of Music degree in Choral, Elementary, or Instrumental Music, and a summer and fifth year internship program, culminating in the Master of Arts in Teaching degree. Music Education students must success- fully complete proficiency examinations in keyboard, vocal, and secondary instruments before being assigned to internships.
