Bachelor of Music Education
Music Education students must complete requirements and be fully admitted to the Teacher Education Program before they can take courses in professional Education number 3000 and above. Refer to the Teacher Education Program in the College of Education section of this Undergraduate Catalog.
Program Admission Requirements
All prospective music majors/minors and transfer students must contact the department office prior to their first semester’s registration to be assigned a departmental advisor and take diagnostic placement tests and performance auditions. Acceptance as a music major/minor is dependent upon auditions and these examinations. Examinations should be taken before or during the week preceding classwork.
These auditions will include technique demonstration and repertoire performance.
Theory Placement Exam
This exam will determine the specific semester of music theory to which a student will be assigned.
Piano Placement Exams
These tests serve to determine the specific semester and section of class piano or private instruction to which a student will be admitted. All music majors must successfully complete the department’s required piano proficiency to graduate. Credits in MUSC 1118, MUSC 1119, MUSC 2218, MUSC 2219, or MUSA 1120 may be used toward passing the piano proficiency. The student must register for piano or piano class each semester until passing the proficiency exam.
