Ensembles

MUDC/MUCO

Music Ensembles for Degree Credit (MUDC) are exclusively for music majors and minors to fulfill major and minor degree requirements. Music Ensembles for Elective Credit Only (MUCO) are for all other students, and music majors and minors who register for more than one ensemble per semester. All students (full-time music majors, music minors, students registered for applied music, and students with majors or minor outside music) participating in an ensemble in a given semester must register for a minimum of 1 MUDC or MUCO credit. Students participating in more than one ensemble during the same semester may register for zero credit for the additional ensemble(s) using a MUCO ensemble number. All students who do not take applied lessons for credit in a given semester and are in an ensemble must register for the ensemble MUDC or MUCO for credit. No zero credit enrollment will be allowed for such students. Ensemble registrations may be repeated for credit. Ensembles taken in excess of degree requirements will only count as electives.

First Year/First Semester Student Ensemble Registration Policy

  • All string majors must register for MUDC 247 Symphony Orchestra.
  • All wind and percussion majors must register for Symphonic Band (MUDC 248B or MUCO 248B) or UNL Jazz Orchestra (MUDC 253A or MUCO 253A).

Requirements for Majors

Every full-time music major (12 credit hours or more) enrolled in applied music lessons must perform in an ensemble from the List of Approved Ensembles (BA/BM keyboard and guitar players may also use MUDC 440A Accompanying Vocal, MUDC 440B Accompanying Instrumental, or MUDC 352 Chamber Music) each semester. Students who have not fulfilled ensemble degree requirements should register for one (and only one) MUDC ensemble per semester. The ensembles listed under the MUDC listing are the only ensembles that will fulfill the degree requirements. Only 1 credit under the MUDC listing may be taken per semester. Students may register for additional ensembles using the MUCO listing. Students in the music education degree program are exempt from ensemble participation during the semester in which they student teach. After the student has completed the minimum ensemble requirement for a degree, the student may participate in any ensembles listed below in the List of Approved Ensembles (plus MUDC 440A Accompanying Vocal, MUDC 440B Accompanying Instrumental, or MUDC 352 Chamber Music for keyboard, composition, or guitar students).

Admission to Music Teacher Education Program

Admission to the Music Teacher Education Program is a prerequisite for a music education major to enroll in any 300- or 400-level music education courses. Admission is competitive and enrollment is limited. Admission requires meeting all of the following criteria:

  1. Completion of at least 42 credit hours with a minimum 2.5 GPA.
  2. Completion of MUED 201 Introduction to Music Education and MUED 244 Music Learning and Development with a minimum grade of C and MUED 297 Professional Practicum Experiences with a Pass.
  3. Documentation of proficiency in reading, writing, and mathematics through successful completion of a basic skills examination that meets the Nebraska Department of Education competency requirement.
  4. Passing the Applied Music–Upper Divisional Qualifying Jury.
  5. Completion of MUSC 266 Music Theory IV, MUSC 266A Aural Skills IV, and MUAP 232 Keyboard Skills IV (or piano proficiency).
  6. Completion of a personal and professional fitness self-disclosure form and formal criminal history background check (fee required). (Undertaken during MUED 201 and MUED 297.)
  7. Successful completion of a screening interview and digital portfolio review with music education faculty. (Undertaken during MUED 244.)

Interview and Portfolio Review Process

Through course work taken during the freshman and sophomore years, each student will compile a digital portfolio to give evidence of his or her potential as a music teacher. This portfolio will include an autobiographical essay, an educational philosophy statement, a professional resume, and sample lesson plans. The music education faculty will review the digital portfolio prior to conducting a screening interview. During the interview students will demonstrate their suitability to a career in music education by responding to questions posed by the faculty. Feedback will be provided to each student detailing the results of the faculty’s assessment.

Students will be admitted into the Music Teacher Education Program during the spring semester. If a student fails to meet any of the above criteria, they will meet with the music education faculty to determine a course of remediation if applicable. If a student wishes to contest the decision of the music education faculty, they may appeal to the director of the Glenn Korff School of Music.

Admission to Student Teaching

Student teaching is required for all students who are candidates for an appropriately endorsed Nebraska Teacher’s Certificate. Students who plan to student teach during the fall semester must apply to the coordinator of Music Field Experiences by the preceding March 1. Students who plan to student teach during the spring semester must apply by the preceding October 1.

During their student teaching semester, students are to be enrolled exclusively in courses that comprise the student teaching experience (MUED 403 Student Teaching Seminar and MUED 497D Student Teaching - Elementary Music or MUED 497T Student Teaching - Secondary Music). Students wishing to enroll in a degree requirement course while student teaching (in order to graduate at the end of the semester) may do so only with the permission of the director of the Glenn Korff School of Music. Students cannot enroll in classes that are not required for their degree.

The removal of an incomplete in student recitals (MUSR 90 Sophomore or Junior Recital in Applied Music, MUSR 91 Senior Recital in Applied Music, or MUSR 490 Recital in Applied Music) during student teaching must have prior approval from the director of the Glenn Korff School of Music.
 

The basic requirements for admission to student teaching are:

  1. Matriculation in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts, the Graduate College, or dual matriculation in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts and another college.
  2. Admission to the Music Teacher Education Program.
  3. Senior standing (89 hours or more) with a minimum cumulative 2.5 GPA.
  4. Completion of all 300- and 400-level MUED courses: MUED 343 Music Composition Methods, MUED 344 General Music Methods, MUED 345 Instrumental Music Methods, MUED 346 Choral Music Methods, MUED 374 Advanced Conducting, and MUED 470 Music and Special Education, with a minimum GPA of 2.5 and no grade below C+ (2.33).
  5. Completion of all 300- and 400-level practica: MUED 397A Professional Practicum Experiences - General Music, MUED 397B Professional Practicum Experiences - Instrumental Music/MUED 397D Professional Practicum Experiences - Choral Music, and MUED 497D Student Teaching - Elementary Music/MUED 497T Student Teaching - Secondary Music, each with a grade of Pass.
  6. Completion of a criminal history check that will be conducted by an independent party (fee required).

The basic program for student teaching in music provides for a full-day experience on a semester basis.

Student Teaching Placement

Student teachers are placed in many school districts in Lincoln and surrounding areas. Out of state student teaching is also possible. Students should be aware that they may be assigned to a school outside the Lincoln area for student teaching. While student preferences for location will be considered, not all personal preferences can be met.

Criminal History/Background Check

All students will be required to have a criminal history/background check completed no earlier than 90 days prior to the first day of their student teaching experience. This will be at the expense of the student. The applications for acceptance into the music teacher education program and into student teaching also require completion of a self-disclosure form.

Removal from Student Teaching

Students participating in practicum or student teaching assignments may be removed from their assigned schools if their conduct suggests a lack of professional commitment and presents a negative influence on the well-being or learning of the students in the schools. If such a problem occurs, the student in question will be removed by the coordinator of Music Field Experiences at the request of the cooperating teacher, building principal, and the university supervisor. In such cases, a written report stating the problem and efforts to correct the situation will be forwarded to the Certification Officer for the College of Education and Human Sciences.

Any student removed from a practicum or student teaching assignment may appeal that decision by submitting a written request to the director of the School of Music within 30 days of the removal. The director will schedule a meeting, request pertinent information from the coordinator of Music Field Experiences, and notify the student several days in advance of the scheduled appeal meeting. Students are advised of their right to seek legal advice and may personally attend the appeals meeting. The decision will be forwarded in writing to the student, to the coordinator of Music Field Experiences, the director of Field Experiences for the College of Education and Human Sciences, and to the dean of the College.

Moral Character and Safety Concerns

Teaching is a profession that requires its potential candidates to be individuals of integrity. Prospective teachers must be able to demonstrate that they are individuals of strong moral character who can make mature decisions for themselves and for their students. Teachers are responsible for the education, safety and well-being for anyone in their charge. Therefore, the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts is interested in training future teachers who show a high degree of moral character and the ability to act responsibly. These individuals must be able to serve as representatives of our College and the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

With this in mind, should the College discover behavior, which in its reasonable judgment, establishes on the part of the candidate a lack of integrity, questionable moral/ethical character, or otherwise indicates a potential of risk to young persons and others in the educational community, the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts reserves the right to deny entry to or dismiss anyone from any program which leads to certification. More specifically, these kinds of behavior shall be adequate foundation to deny any candidate or potential candidate from participation in any practicum, pre-practicum, student teaching, or similar field experience, since the interests and safety of the children and young people present in the classroom, schools, and other venues where these practicum experiences take place are paramount.

Problematic behaviors, which the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts reasonably determines renders the candidate a risk to the educational community or demonstrates a likelihood of illegal activity, may be established by any credible means, including the facts surrounding a record of arrests and/or convictions.

Similarly, behaviors which result in a finding by a court or other governmental body that the individual is:
 

  • a mentally ill and dangerous person;
  • mentally incompetent to stand trial;
  • acquitted of criminal charges because of insanity;
  • an incapacitated person;
  • a person in need of a guardian or conservator, or;
  • a person unable to manage his or her property due to mental illness, mental deficiency, or chronic use of drugs or chronic intoxication are the kind of behaviors which are likely to disqualify a candidate from participation in practicum experiences and other Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts programs.

Nebraska State Department of Education Policy Pertaining to Students with Felony or Misdemeanor Convictions

The Nebraska Department of Education policy requires that a person with felony convictions or misdemeanor convictions involving abuse, neglect, or sexual misconduct shall not be allowed to participate in pre-student teaching laboratory and classroom experiences or student teach without approval by the Board of Education. To comply with this policy, the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts will require each student to affirm under oath that he or she does not have any convictions in the above named areas prior to each field placement. If a student does have any felony or misdemeanor convictions, he/she is required to meet with Dr. Tom Wandzilak, Certification Officer, Student Services Center, 104 Henzlik Hall, 402-472-8626, as soon as possible. Students with questions pertaining to convictions should contact Dr. Wandzilak.

Application for a Nebraska Teaching Certificate

To actively engage in the teaching profession, a candidate must fulfill both the College degree requirements and the professional certification requirements of the State of Nebraska. Undergraduate students apply for the teaching certificate at the same time they apply for the baccalaureate degree. Post-baccalaureate students completing teacher certification apply to the Advisor for Music Education, Westbrook Music Building.

Graduation Without Certification

In rare cases, permission may be granted for a student to graduate without a recommendation for certification. This provision is for the student who does not qualify for, or is removed from, student teaching. However, there are times when, because of illness or other extreme situations, a student will decide not to complete all professional requirements. In this situation, the student should contact his or her advisor, then complete a formal request to the coordinator of Music Field Experiences to be allowed to graduate without completing all certification requirements. If permission is granted, the student is expected to complete all professional requirements except student teaching. This includes a passing grade in all methods courses. If a student fails to complete at least one half of the student teaching assignment, the individual will be required to complete a culminating project not to exceed 6 credit hours.

Any student who graduates without a recommendation for certification will not be recommended for teacher certification in any state. In addition, the student will not be eligible for graduation with honors. If, at some future time, the student wishes to complete certification requirements, he or she must first appeal for readmission to the music teacher education program. At least one semester must pass after graduation before the appeal can be made. If the appeal is granted, the student will be treated as a readmitted student and will complete all requirements in effect at the time of reentry, including passing grades in all methods courses.

College Degree Requirements

College General Education Requirements

Foreign Languages/Language Requirement

The languages requirement serves to help students gain a working familiarity with a language and a culture other than their own.

All students pursuing bachelor of arts or bachelor of music degrees are required to complete the intermediate level in one foreign language. Some or all of these courses may be completed while in high school. Courses approved to satisfy the languages requirement are offered by the Department of Classics and Religious Studies and the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures in the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Department of Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology in the College of Education and Human Sciences. A student is required to successfully complete 202 to fulfill the languages requirement. (Exceptions: In Japanese, a student must complete JAPN 201 Second-Year Japanese I and one additional course from JAPN 202 Intermediate Grammar and Reading I, JAPN 203 Second-Year Japanese II, and JAPN 204 Intermediate Grammar and Reading II; in Greek, the student must complete two 300-level courses; in Latin, a student must take LATN 301 Latin Prose I and LATN 302 Latin Poetry I.) Instruction is currently available in Arabic, Chinese, Czech, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Japanese, Latin, Omaha Native Language, Russian, Spanish, and American Sign Language.


NOTE:

  • A student who has completed three years of one foreign language study in high school may fulfill the languages requirement by taking a fourth-semester-level course.
  • A student who has completed the fourth-year level of one foreign language in high school is exempt from the languages requirement.
  • Any student who achieves a specified scaled score in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject exam in French, German, and Spanish, levels 1 and 2, will be exempt from the languages requirement and will also receive credit for the fourth semester course in the language.
  • A transfer student with 11 or 12 semester hours of accepted credit has two choices: 1) to complete 6 hours in the same language at the 200 level; or 2) with permission of the chair of the department to enroll in a fourth semester course.
  • A student from a foreign country who has demonstrated acceptable proficiency in his or her native language (other than English) is exempted from the languages requirement without credit toward the degree. American students who present acceptable evidence that their second language is English are exempted from the languages requirement without credit toward the degree. All such students should see the Dean’s Office, 102 Woods Art Building, for this exemption.

Minimum Hours Required for Graduation

A minimum of 120 semester hours of credit is required for graduation from the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts. Students in the College are required to maintain a minimum current and cumulative GPA of 2.0. Individual departments may require a higher current and cumulative GPA.

Grade Rules

C- and D Grades

The College will accept no more than 15 semester hours of D grades from schools outside of the University of Nebraska system.

Grades lower than C earned at UNL or transferred from other schools cannot be applied toward requirements in a major, but may be applied toward total hours.

Pass/No Pass

University regulations for the Pass/No Pass privilege state: The Pass/No Pass option is designed to be used by a student seeking to expand his/her intellectual horizons by taking courses in areas where he/she may have minimum preparation without adversely affecting his/her grade point average.

  1. Neither the P nor the N grade contribute to a student’s GPA
  2. P is interpreted to mean C or above. Some professional education courses require a C+ or above.
  3. A change to or from Pass/No Pass may be made until mid-term (1/2 of the course.) This date coincides with the final date to drop a course without the instructor’s approval.
  4. The Pass/No Pass or grade registration cannot conflict with the professor’s, department’s, college, or University policy governing grading option.
  5. Prior to the mid-term deadline, changing to or from the Pass/No Pass requires using the MyRED system to change the grading option or filing a Drop/Add form with the Office of the University Registrar, 107 Canfield Administration Building. After the mid-term deadline, a student registered for Pass/No Pass cannot change to a grade registration unless the Pass/No Pass registration is in conflict with a professor’s, department’s, college, or University policy governing Pass/No Pass.
  6. The Pass/No Pass grading option cannot be used for the removal of C- or D or F grades.

Pass/no pass privileges in the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts are extended to students according to the following additional regulations:

  1. Pass/no pass hours can count toward fulfillment of ACE requirements up to the 24-hour maximum.
  2. Freshmen and sophomores may enroll for no more than 6 hours of Pass/No Pass work per semester.
  3. Students may not elect to take courses on a Pass/No Pass basis to fulfill degree requirements in the major. Departments may allow up to 6 hours of Pass/No Pass to be taken in the minor offered by the Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts.
  4. Departments may specify that certain courses can be taken only on a Pass/No Pass basis.
  5. The College will permit no more than a total of 24 semester hours of Pass/No Pass grades to be applied toward degree requirements. This total includes all “pass” grades earned at UNL and other schools.

Individual departments vary in their policies regarding Pass/No Pass hours as applied to the major and minor. Consult the individual departmental listings for these policies. Students who wish to apply Pass/No Pass hours to their major and minor(s) must obtain approval on a form that is available in the Dean’s Office, 102 Woods Art Building.

GPA Requirements

Students are expected to maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average each semester. Some programs within the College may have higher GPA requirements to keep in good academic standing.

Transfer Credit Rules

Ordinarily, hours earned at an accredited college are accepted by the University. The College, however, will evaluate all hours submitted on an application for transfer and reserves the right to accept or reject any of them. The maximum number of hours the University will accept on transfer from a two-year college is 60.

Normally credit is not given for pre-university work. In some instances, however, it may be possible to receive credit through satisfactory examination.

All transfer students must complete the Residency Requirement (see “Residency Requirement”), and at least 9 hours in the major field must be completed at the University regardless of the number of hours transferred.

The Hixson-Lied College of Fine and Performing Arts will accept no more than 15 semester hours of D grades from schools other than UNO or UNK. All grades may be transferred from UNO or UNK. However, transfer courses within a student’s major or minor will be evaluated by that unit and held to the same minimum grade standards as courses taken at UNL.

School of Art, Art History and Design Transfer Credit Policy

A studio or art history course presented for possible transfer to UNL is evaluated by the School of Art, Art History and Design using course descriptions and/or course syllabi to evaluate content, and course schedules to evaluate the hours of instruction.

Studio courses that are eligible for transfer credit based on course content are awarded one credit hour for every 30 hours of instruction (with the assumption that the transfer course required 15 hours of work outside of class for every 30 hours spent in class with the instructor.) Credit is rounded to the nearest half-credit hour. If a course is presented for possible transfer, and the hours of instruction fall short of UNL’s NASAD-based standards, the course will receive a proportional reduction in credit.

Each major requires a minimum amount of credit that must be completed at UNL.  Courses taken at other academic institutions may be applied toward the remaining required credits subject to evaluation by the department.  Specific limits may be found in the major requirements section.

Glenn Korff School of Music Transfer Credit Policy

The following will be used by advisors as guidelines for the evaluation of transfer credits which are less than five years old:
 

  • If a transfer student has successfully completed (grade C or above) approved transfer credits which are equivalent to music major/minor requirements in terms of number of credit hours and scope of content, that area will be considered completed at the discretion of the chief degree program advisor.
  • For approved transfer credits which are lacking equivalency in either number of credit hours, scope of content, or grade received to music major/minor requirements in applied music, music theory, sight singing/aural skills, and keyboard skills, the number of transfer credits accepted and placement will be determined by audition/proficiency tests administered by designated area faculty.
  • For approved transfer credits which are lacking equivalency in other music areas (history and ensembles), the number of transfer credits accepted will be determined by the chief degree program advisor.

All music course work which is more than five years old must be validated by an audition or competency examination given by designated area faculty.

Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film Transfer Credit Policy

There are no additional restrictions regarding transfer credit.

Transfer Credit from Foreign Institutions

Credit for courses taken at foreign universities and colleges will be transferred only after validation by the appropriate department. This evaluation may include examination of the student over subject matter studied at the foreign institution.

International Baccalaureate Credit

Students who have studied art, music, or theatre within the International Baccalaureate Program will be given credit for courses at UNL according to the guidelines established by each academic unit. Contact the department office for specific course information.

Course Level Requirements

Upper-Level Requirement: Thirty of the 120 semester hours of credit must be in courses numbered above 299.

Residency

Students must meet either of the following residency qualifications:

  • At least 30 of the last 36 hours of credit must be registered for and completed while enrolled at UNL.
  • A total of 90 credits must be registered for and completed while enrolled at UNL.

Credit earned during education abroad may be used toward degree requirements if students participate in prior approved programs and register through UNL. Credit awarded from an institution other than UNL will be subject to transfer credit and residency rules.

ACE Requirements

All students must fulfill the Achievement Centered Education (ACE) requirements. Information about the ACE program may be viewed at ace.unl.edu.

Catalog Rule

Students who first enroll at Nebraska under the 2017-2018 Undergraduate Catalog must fulfill the requirements stated in this catalog or in any other catalog which is published while they are enrolled in the College provided the catalog they follow is no more than ten years old at the time of graduation. A student must, however, meet the requirements from one catalog only rather than choosing a portion from one catalog and the remainder from another.
 

Exception: Students pursuing any degree in the Glenn Korff School of Music who fail to take at least one course that will fulfill their degree requirements during a 12-month period must apply for re-admission. They are then required to move to the new catalog and fulfill the requirements in effect at the time of readmission.

Learning Outcomes

Majors in music education (BME) will be able to:

  1. Understand the role of music in the physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of children and adolescents.
  2. Integrate into instruction a variety of musical styles including classical, jazz, popular, and world music.
  3. Acquire effective teacher characteristics in terms of rapport with students, verbal instruction, and nonverbal communication.
  4. Detect errors in musical performance and devise effective strategies to correct them.
  5. Build a repertoire of classroom management techniques to use in any music teaching situation.

  7. Develop curricula and plan for instruction in P-12 settings.
  8. Use assessment appropriately in various educational settings.

Major Requirements

Core Requirements

A three-year sequence of courses called the Music Core Curriculum is at the heart of the Glenn Korff School of Music instructional program. Music Core Curriculum courses may not be taken for a Pass/No Pass grade.

The first year of study provides, within a comprehensive framework, a foundation for the successful study of music in an academic environment. Courses include an historical overview and concentrate on music fundamentals, keyboard and aural skills, and conducting. Courses are taken concurrently in each of two semesters beginning with the fall semester.

Additional Major Requirements

Requirements for Continuing Study Toward a Music Degree

Music education majors are required to demonstrate adequate skills in applied music, functional keyboard, theory and sight singing before they may continue toward the completion of a degree. The following prerequisites are in place to secure this requirement.

Applied Music–Upper Divisional Qualifying Jury

Music majors must pass the Upper Divisional Qualifying Jury (UDQJ) to be admitted into 300-level applied music. The UDQJ is usually taken in the fourth semester of applied study.

Part I – Basic Skills

Faculty evaluate the student’s minimal capabilities, including the ability to sight read and perform scales and arpeggios, to determine if the student may continue as a music major.

Part II - Musicianship

Faculty evaluate the student’s performance to determine if the student may continue as a music major.

Evaluation

The UDQJ is judged Pass/No Pass, with pass meaning that the student’s basic musical skills and musicianship are judged to be at least minimal for his/her instrument. The jury members in each area will use a general consensus approach in determining Pass/No Pass. A no pass on the UDQJ will indicate an interpretation by the faculty that the student has not completed the requirements for the Upper Divisional Qualifying Jury, resulting in a formal grade of incomplete. The student then has two additional juries to remove the incomplete. The student may continue to register for applied study at the 200 level for a maximum of two semesters until the incomplete is removed. After one year, the incomplete will expire, causing the grade to revert to a D or F. If the student passes the re-take before the beginning of the 2nd week of classes, he/she will be permitted to register for 300-level applied music courses for that semester.
 

NOTE: A re-examination will be scheduled only during the first week of classes following a semester in which the UDQJ was failed or during regular scheduled jury times at the end of a semester.

The status of music major is provisional, pending a satisfactory completion of the UDQJ. The result of the UDQJ is validated on the UDQJ JURY form with faculty signatures, and filed in the music office.

Grade Rules

C- and D Grades

Students must earn grades of C or better in these courses. Any course in which a student earns a grade of C- or below must be repeated in order to count toward the requirement.

Pass No/Pass

All courses taken to fulfill music major or minor requirements must be taken for a grade (except those only offered as Pass/No Pass).

Extended Education, Independent Study Rules, Internship Credit Rules, Transfer Credit used in Major Requirements

The following will be used by advisors as guidelines for the evaluation of transfer credits that are less than five years old:
 

  • If a transfer student has successfully completed (grade C or above) approved transfer credits that are equivalent to NU area requirements in terms of number of credit hours and scope of content, that area will be considered completed at the discretion of the chief degree program advisor.
  • For approved transfer credits which are lacking equivalency in either number of credit hours, scope of content, or grade received to NU area requirements in applied music, music theory, sight singing/aural skills, and keyboard skills, the number of transfer credits accepted and placement in the NU area will be determined by audition/proficiency tests administered by designated area faculty.
  • For approved transfer credits that are lacking equivalency in other music areas (history and ensembles) the number of transfer credits accepted will be determined by the chief degree program advisor.

All music course work that is more than five years old must be validated by an audition or competency examination given by designated area faculty.
