The Department of
Music offers a BS in music education and a BA in music with specializations in
performance, jazz studies, or theory/composition. In addition to the
undergraduate degree offerings, the department offers a minor in music as well
as courses in the general education program, focusing on western art music,
music theory, jazz history, world music, and music technology. The department
is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.
Full- and part-time faculty
specializations include bass, bassoon, cello, clarinet, composition, computer
technology, euphonium, flute, guitar, harp, horn, oboe, organ, percussion,
piano, saxophone, trombone, trumpet, tuba, viola, violin, and voice.
To enroll as a music major, all
students must apply separately to the Department of Music. Call the department
for an application. Entrance auditions, along with a theory placement test,
will be administered by members of the music faculty. Students with deficiencies
in theory and/or piano may be required to take remedial courses, which would
not be credited toward the degree.
