Music B.A.

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.
