A major in music, as in any other department, may be declared anytime up to the end of the Sophomore year. Nevertheless, music majors are encouraged to declare their majors as soon as they have decided upon them so that they can be assigned advisers in the Music Department. A Declaration of Major form may be obtained at the Registrar’s Office and brought to the Chair of the Music Department to be signed. The Chair will designate a faculty adviser in the Department. It is the longstanding policy of the College not to refuse any student the opportunity to major in any academic department. However, departments are obligated to inform students when they appear to lack the necessary qualifications for a major. See the College Catalogue for information about the entrance audition for the B. Mus. Degree program in Performance, the portfolio review for admission to the B. Mus. Degree program in Theory/ Composition, and the entrance audition requirements for the B. Mus. Ed. degrees in Public School Teaching and in Music Therapy.
I am considering applying to your school. Please contact me with further information about your programs. Thank you.
