Music (MUSI, MUED)

http://www.unh.edu/music

The Department of Music offers two degree programs: the bachelor of arts in music and the bachelor of music.

The University of New Hampshire Department of Music is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.

Prospective majors in music are advised to contact the department for information on acceptance into the major.

All music students must earn grades of C- or better in all required music and music education courses. The required minimum overall GPA in required music and music education coursework is 2.0.

Bachelor of Arts in Music

The bachelor of arts in music program offers students an opportunity to major in music within the liberal arts curriculum. This program is intended for those who wish to pursue the serious study of music and to acquire at the same time a broad general education; it is recommended for those considering graduate study leading to master's or doctoral degrees.

To be admitted formally to the B.A. program, students must give evidence of satisfactory musical training by taking an admission audition. Students must declare music as a major before the beginning of the junior year, but it is highly recommended that they declare as early as possible, considering the large number of required courses.

The bachelor of arts degree is offered with three options: music liberal studies, performance study, and composition. 

Bachelor of Music Degree Program

The bachelor of music degree program is offered to students who wish to develop their talent in performance, composition, or music education to a high professional level. The program is recommended to those considering graduate study leading to the M.M. or D.M.A. degrees. The music education option is part of the undergraduate certification program (see the Department of Education).

To be admitted to the B.M. program, students must demonstrate a high degree of musical competence or significant creative ability during an audition or examination. Selection is made on the professional requirements appropriate to each option. Students must formally declare the B.M. as a degree program before the beginning of the sophomore year. Continuation into the upper level of the program is subject to review by the department faculty.

Four degrees are offered in the bachelor of music curriculum: bachelor of music in music education1; bachelor of music in performance1; bachelor of music in composition2, and bachelor of music pre-teaching2.
