All music majors, before completion of their degree program, must demonstrate an acceptable proficiency in keyboard, aural, and sight singing skills. Specific details about these requirements can be found in the Music Study Handbook. The handbook is presented to all music majors at the beginning of each year and is considered an addendum to the University Bulletin.
Opportunities for individual performance are available through regularly scheduled student recitals. They are included as a part of Music at Midweek, a weekly series of professional and non-professional performances. Attendance at these and other designated campus performances is required of all music students. Unsatisfactory attention to this requirement can delay or deny graduation.
Students choosing to work toward the Bachelor of Arts in music will complete their studies with a senior presentation supervised by a faculty member. The selection of a topic and work toward that completion will begin during the junior year.
