Course Selection Guidelines:


Students are required to consult their music faculty advisors when choosing electives.  Concentrations are available in composition, music history,  performance, and ethnomusicology.  All students should plan to complete the 100-level music theory sequence early in their music studies.  Music Theory 3 is strongly recommended as a capstone theory course for students specializing in composition, performance, or music history. The department values performance as an essential component of musical training. The list of ensembles follows the music course descriptions.
