Plan of Study
Notes on the plan of study for B.A. music:
* Piano proficiency credit hours appear in the plan of study as zero (0). If a student passes the piano proficiency examination the total credit hours per semester would be zero, so these courses are not included in final degree totals. If the proficiency is not passed, add one (1) credit hour per semester for the required piano course.
** MUS HIS 1020 may substitute for the Fine Arts requirements for all music majors, 3 hours in the Liberal Arts Core, Category 3A.
*** 2 credit hours of 3000-level applied courses are required.
