Department of Music Handbook


Each senior is required to pass a comprehensive examination in the major field of study.  This special examination will be held during the final year of the candidate's residence.  The Department of Music comprehensive exam consists of two parts:

  • Senior Recital,

  • Written Comprehensive Field Test.

The Senior Recital may be scheduled during either fall or spring semester of the candidate's senior year.  The Written Comprehensive Field Test should be scheduled with the department chair during spring semester, at least 30 days prior to the end of the term.

Please allow two hours for testing, in addition to approximately 15 minutes for instructions.
