For the music studies option, a bachelor’s degree in music, or its equivalent, from an accredited institution is required for admission; for the option in music education the requirement is a bachelor’s degree in music education, or a bachelor’s degree in music and teacher certification. A theory placement examination may be required. Students will not be allowed to enroll in MUSI 994, a required course, until this examination is waived or passed to the satisfaction of the department. For the music studies option, a reading knowledge of both German and French is strongly recommended before entering the program. The department will administer a German reading examination. On recommendation of the graduate adviser, this requirement may be waived for students who do not plan to study in musicology beyond the M.A. degree. Applicants planning to enter the music studies option should contact the graduate coordinator concerning additional application requirements. Applicants for the music education option must arrange for an interview with the music education coordinator.
