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 14101 Razorback Chorus I or MUEN 15901 Treble Chorus I during the first year of residence.

Students with previous piano training may take a piano placement exam and be advised to omit one or more semesters of Class Piano (MUAC 12201, MUAC 12301, MUAC 22201).
