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 with their music adviser about the requirements in their concentration’s eight-semester plan.  Music core requirement hours may vary, based on placement and previous credit granted.  If a music core requirement is met without taking a class, students will substitute an elective for the core class.
