Courses

--continued

 

The faculty has approval to offer the following courses in the academic years 2004-2005 and 2005-2006; however, not all courses are taught each semester or summer session. Students should consult the Course Schedule to determine which courses and topics will be offered during a particular semester or summer session. The Course Schedule may also reflect changes made to the course inventory after the publication of this catalog.

A full explanation of course numbers is given in General Information. In brief, the first digit of a course number indicates the semester hour value of the course. The second and third digits indicate the rank of the course: if they are 01 through 19, the course is of lower-division rank; if 20 through 79, of upper-division rank; if 80 through 99, of graduate rank.

School of Music

The University of Texas at Austin is an institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music, approved for both its undergraduate and its graduate degrees in music. The requirements for entrance and for graduation given in this catalog are in accordance with the published regulations of the association.

Fields of Study

The College of Fine Arts offers courses in several areas of music. The undergraduate courses available in music performance, music literature, music studies, and music theory are listed below; complete descriptions of these courses are given in the following section.

Music Performance

Before the first semester or summer session in which they will be enrolled, new and transfer students must file an Application for Instruction in Music Performance. The card indicates the faculty member to whom the student has been assigned.

All students enrolled in a music performance course must fill out a Music Performance and Jury Report at the end of each semester or summer session for each course taken.

Students who receive a grade of D or F in any music performance course may not register for that course the next semester until the requests of other students for such work have been met.

Some of the following courses may be repeated for credit on the recommendation of the appropriate music performance jury.
