The School of Music offers undergraduate programs leading to the Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.), Bachelor of Music in music education (B.Muse.), and Bachelor of Arts (BA).
Areas of specialization for the B.M. include:
The Bachelor of Music in music education provides an instrumental, choral or choral/keyboard emphasis. In addition to the above degrees, a curriculum is offered leading to the Bachelor of Arts with emphasis in ethnomusicology, music history, performance or theory/composition.
Recognizing the value of music to our culture, society, and individual experience, the School of Music at the University of Florida is committed to the teaching and development of musicians, music educators, and scholars. As a vital component of one of the leading AAU research universities in the nation, the School of Music fully encourages scholarly research, creative activity, and interdisciplinary studies across all degree programs. Undergraduate and graduate offerings are intended to meet the needs of a diverse student population and prepare students for professional careers in music. The faculty includes renowned performers and pedagogues who are committed to the development of musicians and to the musical enrichment of the community. Graduate studies in the School of Music are expanding to include and support a broad range of music degrees and programs. This exemplifies the school’s vision, its continued investment in its students, and the University of Florida’s growing presence as a distinguished institution.
Admission to any curricula in the School of Music includes an audition and acceptance in a performance area. A minimum grade point average of 2.0 is required, except in music education where 2.5 is required. Prospective majors should contact the school’s director of admissions as early as possible.
For admission to the professional level of study, all music majors must complete:
A Comprehensive Musicianship Jury will take place at the end of each semester of theory. The Final Comprehensive Musicianship Exam will be taken at this jury after four semester of theory. All students must pass the Final Comprehensive Musicianship Exam whether theory courses are completed at UF or are transferred from another institution. Transfer students must successfully complete at UF, with a grade of C or better, any remedial course work assigned by the School of Music before taking the Final Comprehensive Musician Exam.
Students who exhibit excellent potential as a music major but who are not adequately prepared to enter the theory sequence as required by the degree track, may be granted provisional status. Students who are provisional status are placed in MUT1001, Rudiments of Theory. At the successful conclusion of MUT1001, provisional students are eligible for classification as a pre-professional music major.
Transfer students, with or without an AA degree, who have satisfactorily completed the required four semesters of music theory sequence and four semesters of lower-division performance study, four semesters of piano skills, and MUL 2110 Musical Styles, must successfully take a Comprehensive Musicianship Exam upon admittance to the School of Music to be considered as a junior. Those students who have not met the above requirements must take a Comprehensive Musicianship Exam for placement within the theory program and must then successfully pass a Comprehensive Musicianship Exam upon completion of the theory course work assigned for remediation.
Music majors must earn a minimum grade of C in each required music course, both to fulfill degree requirements and to advance to the next level. All music students must stand for a performance examination each term they are enrolled in performance study. No course may be repeated more than once, except for ensembles, performance courses and project courses. Consult School’s Music Student Information Handbook for specific requirements.
