Piano Proficiency Requirement
The Conservatory's undergraduate piano proficiency requirement must be met.
Applied Music Requirement
Successful completion of one of the following is required:
- If the student qualifies for applied music at the 302 level, then no applied study is required.
- If the student does not qualify through audition for applied music at the 302 level, then the student must enroll for applied study for three semesters or until the 301 jury is passed.
Foreign Language Requirement
For all masters students in Music Theory, a grade of B- (2.7) or better in a first-semester, sophomore-level foreign language course or C (2.0) work or better in each of two junior-level courses or in one senior-level literature or civilization course is viewed as an adequate demonstration of foreign language skills. Students must study French or German. A language proficiency test, if provided by language instructors or departments, may be substituted for course requirements provided it documents language capabilities equivalent to the previously described courses. In such cases, a letter from the university language professor, describing the process and results, must be forwarded to the Conservatory Associate Dean for Graduate Studies.
