Music Major


Return to Majors, Minors, Concentrations, and Certifications Return to: Majors, Minors, Concentrations, and Certifications

The music major provides a solid foundation in music history, theory, and practical musicianship, as well as a degree of specialization at the upper level in various areas of the field. Students may specialize in computer music, jazz, music history, performance, theory and composition, or the arts administration concentration through a variety of elective courses in addition to the core curriculum. Writing proficiency in the major may be earned in either MUS 349  or MUS 458 . Music majors may not audit private instruction courses, but may audit ensembles. Students who wish to explore interdisciplinary connections with other subjects may also do so. (See Music in the Individualized Major and MUS 497 : Capstone in Music.) Total credits required: 48 (52 if MUS 101 and 131 are required).

Courses students may test out of:


Concentration in Arts Administration


For students who wish to develop a career that includes both the business management area of music and the art of music. Arts administration is a rapidly expanding field, and Goucher is in the forefront in developing an undergraduate concentration in this area. Students wishing to pursue the Arts Administration concentration should refer to Business Management for more details.

Note:


* MUS 290  is a three-four credit internship in music as an integrative exercise in arts administration. With the approval of the program and the adviser in arts administration, the required college wide off-campus experience may be used to satisfy this requirement.
