Music Theory Placement Exam

It is possible for students to test into Music I (MUSC 209) and Music Theory II (MUSC 260) by taking a placement exam rather than taking Theory I (MUSC 160).

Send an email indicating your interest in taking the placement exam to Professor Matthew Taylor, A time will then be arranged to administer the placement exam.

Incoming students: Arrange to take the exam prior to registration.

Current students: November 1, April 1 deadlines for requesting placement exam for the next semester classes.

Independent Projects and Senior Work

All students interested in submitting a proposal for senior work or an independent study project for next academic year should first discuss their intentions with department chair Jeffrey Buettner and/or with a music faculty advisor. See Proposal Forms below.
