The Music major provides a general music program in the humanities, as well as preparation for graduate studies or for careers in music. The standard major consists of twelve term courses, eleven of which must be numbered 300 or above, excluding the prerequisites, MUSI 210, 211, 218, and 219. To gain a comprehensive familiarity with the history and theory of music, a student majoring in Music completes a survey of music history from the medieval period to the present, a survey of world music, a two-course music theory requirement, and an advanced research seminar. The survey courses in music history and world music are MUSI 350, 351, 352, and 353. Students choose two courses from the music theory series numbered 301 through 311 to satisfy the music theory requirement. Also required is one Level III or IV course in the Department of Music bearing the WR designation during the junior or senior year. Four additional term courses in music chosen from Levels II, III, and IV (only one of which is from Level II) complete the major. Prospective majors are advised to begin the required courses by their sophomore year.
