Organ majors with a church music emphasis must enroll in ORGN 5020 for at least two consecutive 16 week semesters and no more than four 16 week semesters to fulfill this requirement.
No coursework taken to remediate deficiencies determined by the student’s score on the Prelim Exam may be used to fulfill the Musicology requirement. It may, however, be used as elective credit, providing it is at the 5000- or 6000-level.
The master’s degree requires the equivalent of at least two semesters of satisfactory graduate work and additional work as may be prescribed for the degree.
All coursework applied to the master’s degree must carry graduate credit.
Master’s degree programs which require a thesis consist of at least 30 credit hours. All non-thesis master’s degree programs require at least 32 credit hours.
Credit transferred from other institutions must meet specific criteria and is subject to certain limitations.
Courses completed through correspondence study may not be applied to the master’s degree.
To qualify for a graduate degree, students must achieve an overall grade point average of 3.0 or higher in the degree program coursework and in all resident graduate coursework attempted. A student must also have at least a 3.0 in all coursework (including undergraduate coursework if any).
