In the first two years of study for the major in music, all students take the same lower-division course work, which typically includes two years of music theory and musicianship, one year each of music history and applied music study, and ensemble performance. In their third and fourth years, students choose upper-division courses along one of the three specialty tracks, concluding their studies with a required senior project. Our three undergraduate tracks are: (1) Composition, (2) History, Theory, and Ethnomusicology, and (3) Performance.
We are hosting a fall orientation for all music majors on Monday, September 25, at 1:00 pm in Room 115, Music Building.
We will review major requirements, the different tracks, auditions, lessons, instruments, lockers, practice rooms, the music library, listening lab, and tickets to concerts. Come meet your advisers, fellow students, and staff members—some important people who can help you navigate your way to a degree in music.
