  1. Full-time students must enroll in one ensemble appropriate to their emphasis area each semester even though the six-hour requirement may have been fulfilled. Part-time students are strongly encouraged to participate in an ensemble every semester.
    Any student, whether full-time or part-time, who is enrolled in an applied music course, must enroll in an ensemble. Students with an emphasis in piano or music studies should consult with their advisor to choose an ensemble.
  2. See General Course Requirements and Approved Electives in Liberal Arts Section. NOTE: Students must earn six hours of 3000+ course work in non-music studies. The most efficient way to fulfill this requirement is to take at least six of the nine hours of required social sciences at the 3000+ level, thereby fulfilling two requirements at once. Students may choose to fulfill the 3000+ requirement by tak­ing courses in other areas of concentration (i.e., humanities, business administration, sciences) but doing so will not reduce the number of social sciences hours required..
  3. Required for all first-time full-time students.
