Freshman Year



Subsequent years will be planned in consultation with an advisor in relation to individual student’s needs and interests, including internships and study abroad programs.

A student who wishes to major in Music after the first semester of the junior year must have permission of the Fine Arts Department Chair, who will also consult with appropriate faculty in the student’s selected major. Transferring late to the major may result in enrollment in additional courses in summer school and/or a later graduation date.

Students interested in completing  a Music Education double major should consult with their advisor and with the Education Department.
