Students with less than a 2.7 average must provide satisfactory scores on the aptitude portion of the Graduate Record Examination. Upon admission and before the end of the first semester of graduate study, each student must take a placement examination in music history and music theory.

Theory/composition applicants must submit evidence of compositional or analytic activity. All performance degree applicants must audition on their principal instrument for acceptance to the appropriate applied music level. Students with a major in conducting performance must show evidence of conducting skill through an audition and interview. Students wishing to enroll in any music course under non-degree status must have the approval of the Coordinator of Graduate Studies in Music. Degree Requirements Completion of all requirements outlined in respective courses of study (see next page). Candidates must meet whatever undergraduate foreign language requirements are appropriate to their major. Music history and literature majors must pass a written examination in at least one foreign language, preferably French or German, before initiating thesis research. Students with a major in voice performance are expected to have completed four semester hours each in French, German, and Italian, or the equivalent. Students who fail to meet the standards set by the School of Music may, upon recommendation of the Dana Graduate Committee, be required to withdraw at the end of the semester. Any student with an overall grade point average below 3.0 (i.e., not in good standing) for two consecutive semesters shall be dismissed from the master s program in music. A final qualifying examination is required of all M.M. candidates. Procedural regulations governing the final qualifying examination are available from the office of the faculty member in charge of graduate studies in music.
