Description

The music major is available in two degree programs. Both include the opportunity to take applied lessons with highly acclaimed faculty artists and scholars, as well as a compulsory foundation in music theory and history, keyboard skills, and ensemble participation.

Students choosing the bachelor of arts degree can expect a substantial amount of musical study encompassing about three years. This degree consists of six successive semesters of applied lessons, culminating with a junior recital in the sixth semester. Alternatively, those who want to pursue research in music may present a research project or document in lieu of the junior recital and last semester of applied lessons. The BA degree requires that a minor area of study be included in the program of studies.

Students wishing to take a course of study in music that will prepare them for graduate study and eventually a professional career in music theory, music history, composition, piano pedagogy, or performance, should take a bachelor of music degree. The bachelor of music degree is recommended for students who have the desire and capacity to reach high standards of achievement in performance study. Students with creative talent may pursue courses in composition and develop their abilities as composers. Music scholars will want to increase their understanding of the history and/or theory of music by pursuing the music history or music theory options. The performance options include eight successive semesters of applied lessons and culminate with a senior recital.

Ensembles

MUDC/MUEN

Music Ensembles for Degree Credit (MUDC) are exclusively for music majors and minors to fulfill music requirements. One, and only one, ensemble must be enrolled as MUDC each term in which the student is involved in major or minor courses. Additional ensembles taken in a given semester by music majors or minors should be registered as Music Ensembles (MUEN).

Other students (without a major or minor in music) participating in an ensemble in a given semester must register for a minimum of one Music Ensembles (MUEN) credit. Students who are taking applied lessons and are participating in more than one ensemble during the same semester have the option to take the additional ensembles(s) for zero credit using a MUEN ensemble number. Zero-credit enrollment will not be allowed for students who are not taking applied lessons.

Ensemble registrations may be repeated for credit. Ensembles taken in excess of major requirements will only count as electives.

First Year/First Semester Student Ensemble Registration Policy

  • All string majors must register for MUDC 347 Symphony Orchestra.
  • All wind and percussion majors must register for MUDC 348B Symphonic Band or MUEN 348B Symphonic Band or MUDC 353A Jazz Ensemble: UNL Jazz Orchestra or MUEN 353E Jazz Ensemble: UNL Jazz Vocal Ensemble.

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 Nebraska 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 Nebraska 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 the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

School of Art, Art History and Design Transfer Credit Policy

A studio or art history course presented for possible transfer to the University of Nebraska–Lincoln 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 the University’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 Nebraska. 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 the University of Nebraska–Lincoln 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 the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.
  • A total of 90 credits must be registered for and completed while enrolled at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

Credit earned during education abroad may be used toward degree requirements if students participate in prior approved programs and register through the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Credit awarded from an institution other than Nebraska 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 2018-2019 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 (BA/BM) will be able to:

  1. Perform in solo and ensemble settings with the technical and musical skills requisite for artistic self-expression.
  2. Demonstrate a knowledge of the solo repertoire of their instrument and the interpretative skills needed to execute the range of styles in that repertoire.
  3. Read solo and ensemble literature at sight with fluency.
  4. Demonstrate an understanding of music theory, including the principles of common-practice harmony, musical form and compositional process.
  5. Demonstrate aural comprehension of common-practice music.
  6. Utilize the keyboard as a tool to support music learning.
  7. Demonstrate an understanding of the styles, genres, composers, forms and processes of the standard periods of art music in the Western European tradition.
  8. Demonstrate the ability to synthesize historical and style-analytical information.

Additional Major Requirements

Requirements for Continuing Study Toward a Music Degree

Music 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 in music. 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 University 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 University 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.

Requirements for Minor Offered by Department

Students must audition for Glenn Korff School of Music faculty for acceptance as a minor in music.
