Eight Semester Degree Program

Students wishing to follow the eight-semester degree plan should see the Eight-Semester Degree Policy for university requirements of the program, and should consult their music adviser for an eight-semester plan that is specific to their vocal, instrumental or theoretical emphasis area in music. Core requirement hours may vary by individual, based on placement and previous credit granted. Once all core requirements are met, students may substitute a three-hour (or more) general elective in place of a core area.
