The B.A. degree program in Arts & Letters provides the opportunity to craft a customized major for students who are interested in the study of any of the forms of human expression, creativity, and culture, and whose career/life plans would be served by an academic scope broader than that offered by any single department. Students enrolled in the Arts & Letters major may declare Music as the primary area of concentration (18 credits/9 upper div.) or secondary area (9 credits/3 upper div.). A music faculty advisor will be assigned to each Arts & Letters student with a primary area in Music. Arts & Letters students may enroll in any MUS course open to all majors or by successful audition. An advisor may recommend an MUS course that is restricted to Music Majors Only, with the consent of the Music Department Chair.
If an Arts & Letters student is accepted into a Music Department ensemble then they have the options of enrolling in MUS 112 (half-hour) applied lessons, unless permission is given by the Music Department Chair to enroll in the MUS 171-473 applied sequence. All students enrolled in the MUS 171-473 applied lesson sequence is subject to all rules, policies and procedures set forth in Music Major Handbook regarding concert attendance, collegia, studio class, and juries.
Permission to give a recital as a Arts and Letters Capstone may only be granted in extenuating circumstances and if the student is enrolled in the appropriate level of applied lessons, has satisfied all other recital conditions set forth in the Music Major Handbook, and with the consent of the applied instructor, area coordinator, and Music Department Chair.
