Music History Exam and Curricular Orientation

Students in all graduate degree programs in music, with the exception of Music Therapy, must attend the musicology advisory exam and orientation session.

The exam is self-reflective. Students will write about past research experiences and their use of musicological skills beyond the classroom, including potential future projects. During the following orientation, students will discuss issues raised by the exam that will guide their course selections. The orientation will also introduce the three different course types offered by the musicology area. From discussion of the exam and the curricular options, students will be prepared to select courses that address deficiencies and expedite progress toward a degree capstone project.

No advanced preparation is required for the exam.
