PROPOSED CHANGES IN THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF BACHELOR OF MUSIC, COMPOSITION MAJOR IN THE COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS SECTION OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

 

The following changes are proposed for requirements given on page 210 of the College of Fine Arts section of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2000-2002:

C.
Recital
1. Upon approval of the music theory and composition faculty, a composition major must present a recital of his or her works. The recital must be approximately thirty minutes in length[,] and must consist of works approved by the student's composition [instructor, and must be] instructor. It is normally given during the student's last semester of Music 224J. It is graded by a jury of designated music theory and composition faculty members. The student must receive from the jury an average grade of at least B for the recital; if the average grade is less than B, the student, upon approval of the music theory and composition faculty, must present another composition recital.

Justification: The change provides more flexibility in the scheduling of the recital. Under certain circumstances, a student may be allowed to present the recital early; may present the recital while not registered for Music 224J; or may wish to extend his or her composition study beyond the last required semester of 224J, therefore delaying the recital. The composition faculty will still approve the scheduling and the content of the recital.
