Performance Seminar Requirements

Every student majoring in music is required to enroll in and successfully complete Performance Seminar (MUSG 185 ) for seven semesters. Graded on a pass/fail basis, this course receives zero hours of credit. A passing grade is based on the attendance of nine of the Performance Seminar offerings per semester and nine additional music events. Performance Seminar meets every Thursday afternoon at 4 p.m. in the Squires Recital Hall in the Center for the Humanities Building.

Because the School of Music believes that music is a performance art, each student is required to perform at least once per academic year in a Performance Seminar class, a studio recital, or a masterclass program.  Students pursuing a Performance degree must perform in an approved venue once per semester.  Any student who does not fulfill the performance requirement within the academic year will receive a failing grade for Performance Seminar in the spring semester.

Exceptions to this policy require an approved academic petition submitted to the Dean of the School of Music prior to the conclusion of the semester. The Performance Seminar requirements for transfer students are determined on an individual basis by the Dean of the School of Music.
