The Music History program develops overall music scholarship and hones research skills.
Students will not be permitted to elect history as a major until they have completed MUSC-005 and MUSC-006 with grades of B or better. Students who major in the history of music must meet the requirements for a minor in piano and must appear creditably on student recitals in this subject. Candidates for graduation will be required to pass an oral examination before a music faculty committee. Students must maintain a B average in their major subject. At least two major projects must relate to an aspect of the black heritage in music. Senior thesis is required.
