Specialized Studies Program - Performance

Program Supervisor: Contact the Area Coordinator for the Specific Performance Specialization

A Specialized Study Program represents an organized curriculum that enhances or complements the degree to be awarded. Only fully admitted students in declared music degree programs may participate in Specialized Studies in the College of Music. Inasmuch as programs may have special requirements or prerequisites, students must contact the designated faculty advisor before beginning any Specialized Studies sequence. Upon completion of a Specialized Study program, students receive a "Recognition of Completion" document; however, such programs are not indicated on University transcripts or diplomas. Additional information is available in 204C HMU (644-4833).
