Music Major Meeting

A Music major meeting is held at the beginning of the academic year to inform students of advisory assistance and information available to them through the Music counselor and the Music faculty. The student is encouraged to consider a broad-based major and minor course of study in order to acquaint him/herself with the many avenues of career planning.

Planning a Program of Study

The core courses in Music are not offered each semester. Programs must be started in the fall semester, as the beginning theory and musicianship courses are offered only in the fall, with their sequels scheduled in the spring.


Course requirements for transfer vary depending upon the college or university a student wishes to attend. Therefore, it is most important for a student to consult with his/her counselor and departmental adviser before planning an academic program for transfer. Information sheets for majors, outlining transfer requirements, are available in the Counseling Center.
