Department of Music Website

The Department of Music offers three majors, one music major leading to a Bachelor of Music and a second leading to a Bachelor of Arts, and a third, music education, leading to a Bachelor of Music degree. The department also offers a minor in music. The Bachelor of Music offers a variety of concentrations as well as a program with elective studies in business.

The music department strives to enrich and inspire the human mind and spirit through the pursuit of excellence in creative activity, research, teaching, and service. The University of Arkansas is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music. The requirements for entrance and for graduation as set forth in this catalog are in accordance with the published regulations of that Association.

General Music Requirements

To achieve junior standing in the curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music and the Bachelor of Music degree, the student must have completed 56 hours and must have maintained a cumulative grade average of “C” in all music courses, with the exception of ensemble, by the end of the fourth semester. The student must also have earned a grade average of not less than “B” in the major applied field of study during the sophomore year. This standing is prerequisite to all 3000-level courses and above in music.

Pursuant to enrolling in applied music courses, all music majors must audition for the music department faculty. Private study of the primary voice/instrument for music majors requires the successful completion of an audition for the instructor and consent of the Department of Music. Music majors are expected to own their own instruments. Some instruments are provided for student use only in certain circumstances and at the discretion of the music department.

All music majors, with exceptions noted below, are required to enroll in MUEN 1411 Razorback Chorus I or MUEN 1591 Treble Chorus I during the first year of residence. Exceptions to the requirement would include all students pursuing the Bachelor of Music (B.M.) degree for whom voice or piano is the major applied area.

Piano Proficiency Requirement: Students pursuing a Bachelor of Music degree must pass a piano proficiency examination upon entering the University of Arkansas or must register in piano classes until this requirement is met. Students with previous piano training may take a piano placement exam and be advised to omit one or more semesters of Class Piano (MUAC 1221, MUAC 1231, MUAC 2221). Students will receive college credit for the omitted class piano courses if they validate their higher placement by passing an advanced piano course with a grade of “B” or better.

On the basis of prior study in music, a student may be advised to omit one or more semesters of Aural Perception (MUTH 1621, MUTH 1631, MUTH 2621). Students will receive college credit for the omitted aural perception courses when they have validated their higher placement by passing the course in which they are placed with a grade of “B”or better.

Writing Requirement: Students can meet the Fulbright College writing requirement by submission of a satisfactory term paper for MUED 4112 (music education majors) or MUHS 4253 (all other music majors).

Requirements for a Minor in Music

A minimum of 18 semester hours in music courses to include MLIT 1013, MUTH 1603, MUTH 2603, and either MUHS 3703 or MUHS 3713; other courses to be determined by the student in consultation with a music faculty adviser. The student must notify the Department of Music of his/her intent to minor.

For requirements for advanced degrees in music, see the Graduate School Catalog.

Requirements for Departmental Honors in Music

The Departmental Honors Program in Music provides upper-division undergraduate students an opportunity to participate formally in scholarly, creative, or performance music activities. Honors candidates carry out independent study, research and performance under the guidance of the music faculty and participate in special honors classes and seminars. They must take 12 hours (which may include 6 hours of thesis) in Honors Studies.

Each honors student will be required to select an honors committee. The committee will be comprised of the honors thesis adviser (a Music Department faculty member and major teacher in the area of the honors project), a second faculty member from the Music Department chosen by the student, a member from outside the music department chosen by the student, and a member of the Honors Council appointed by the Honors College. This committee is responsible for hearing and seeing the work of the student in the area of the honors project and will administer the oral examination to the candidate at the end of the last semester of the student’s work. The committee then recommends to the Honors Council whether or not the student receives honors in music. Outstanding student achievement will be recognized by awarding the distinction “Music Scholar Cum Laude” at graduation. The award of higher degree distinctions is recommended only in truly exceptional cases and is based upon the whole of the candidate’s program of honors studies.

The student may elect to do the honors project in one of six areas: performance, music history and literature, theory, composition, music education, or ethnomusicology. Honors work may be done in an area other than the student’s major area that is, a student majoring in voice performance may elect to do honors work in music history, theory, or composition, etc.

If a student wishes to devise his or her own honors project in consultation with a supervising professor and with the permission of the department chair, he or she may be granted honors. If a student wishes to combine work in more than one field and if the committee approves, he or she may be granted honors in more than one area, although the designation on the diploma will read “in music.”

The requirements for work in each area are as follows:

  1. Performance
    1. 2 semesters of MUAP 310VH or MUAP 410VH, with concurrent registration in MUAP 3201H and MUAP 4201H
    2. Other music department honors courses are recommended, see honors adviser. (A program file representing the student’s range of performance activities during the junior and senior years will be maintained for the department file and for the Honors Council. Compact discs of the junior and senior recitals will be filed with the Honors Office.)
  2. History and Literature
    1. Junior year: MUHS 5973 Seminar in Bibliography and Methods of Research
    2. Senior year: MUSC 490VH Honors Essay
  3. Theory
    1. Junior year: MUHS 5973 Seminar in Bibliography and Methods of Research
    2. Senior year: MUSC 490VH Honors Essay
  4. Composition
    1. At least six hours of MUTH 364VH Honors Composition III or MUTH 464VH Honors Composition IV
    2. A full program of original compositions or equivalent.
  5. Music Education
    1. Junior year: MUED 5513 Seminar: Resources in Music Education
    2. Senior year: MUSC 490VH Honors Essay
  6. Ethnomusicology
