Music Performance, Certificate

Certificate Requirements

The course of study for the certificate includes applied music registration for:

  • MUSC 211 (for 3 credits each semester)
  • MUSC 411 (for 3 credits each semester)

Additional Information

The certificate requires a maximum of no more than 18 hours beyond the requirements of the baccalaureate program. An extended jury is required to progress from MUSC 211 to MUSC 411. The completion of the program is dependent upon the following musical equivalent to a senior thesis experience: successful completion of two half recitals or one full recital. The recital will be graded by the same criteria as a performance degree recital. The candidate’s program may be revoked by: request of candidate, action of the candidate’s jury, or action of the jury at the half or full recital. All qualifying students will receive the performance certificate upon completion of their degree. In addition to receiving the performance certificate, music majors will receive their degree “with distinction in music performance” at commencement as part of the Departmental Undergraduate Research Track.
