The Bachelor of Arts in Music degree provides basic training in all areas of music and serves as a foundation for graduate study of any specialized aspect of the field. It requires no fewer than four consecutive semesters of courses in music theory, musicianship, and music history. All sequences begin in the fall. Prospective majors must plan their programs so that they are prepared to begin major courses in a fall semester at least two years before they plan to graduate. It is preferable to begin the 200-level major courses three years before graduation to allow time in the senior year for advanced electives.

Students must complete or exempt through examination MUS 120 and MUS 123 or MUS 124 and complete and pass MUS 125 (spring semester) before taking 200-level theory, musicianship, or music history classes. Prospective majors must earn a minimum grade of B- in all three courses or proficiency exams in order to declare the Music major. Once you have taken or been exempted from these courses, you may declare the Music major.
