The music education program includes 15 hours in the major area; 12 hours of supportive courses in Music distributed among three cognate areas; five hours of elective courses and from one to three hours of thesis preparation, or a recital (performance), or project. The course of study will be determined by the student in consultation with the graduate advisory committee and will be subject to the approval of the Graduate Coordinator and the Dean of the Graduate School. Students in the Music Education concentration must pass a Division Jury audition prior to 5000-level applied study. This is required if the student chooses a recital in lieu of a thesis or project.
If the performance option is chosen, the candidate must be approved for 5000-level applied instruction and study with the appropriate applied music professor during the semester in which the recital takes place. The recital pre-hearing must also be approved by the Division Jury.
