Cadek Department of Music
Associate Professor Lee Harris, Head
The requirements for entrance and graduation as set forth in the catalog are in accordance with the published regulations of the National Association of Schools of Music and the Tennessee regulations for certification of teachers.
The Cadek Department of Music offers two degree programs at the undergraduate level: Bachelor of Arts with a major in music and the Bachelor of Music. The B.M. degree provides four concentrations for the major: instrumental performance, vocal performance, sacred music, and theory/composition. The B.M. degree in music education provides two concentrations for the major: instrumental and vocal.
The B.A. degree is offered students who desire a strong liberal arts background with a major in music. Approximately one-third of the four-year B.A. program is in music, and numerous elective hours outside the department permit considerable study in other academic areas. The B.M. degree affords the student a more concentrated course of study in the major area: approximately two- thirds of the four-year program is in music. The B.M. degree in music education is especially appropriate for students who plan a career teaching music in elementary, middle, or secondary schools. It combines general education with music content and teaching methodology in a highly structured course of study. Successful completion of the program gains the student teaching certification. All three degree programs represent appropriate preparation for graduate study.
In addition to University admission standards, prospective music majors will stand an audition in their primary performing area which will determine the appropriate applied music course level and degree program. All music majors are required to participate in an ensemble for each semester of residence appropriate to the concentration, and must accumulate a minimum of eight hours credit (seven hours for music education majors). For all music majors, a 2.0 average in music courses is required for enrollment in 300 and 400 level music courses. A senior educational experience is required of all majors.
In addition to degree requirements herein listed, other regulations for music majors appear in the current Music Student Handbook.
