Department of Music

Department of Music Mission Statement

The Department of Music actively embraces Georgia Southern University's primary goal of excellence in teaching. Our professional faculty places the highest priority on nurturing students through academic, applied, and ensemble course work and thoughtful advisement while remaining engaged in creative activity and scholarship. The department offers a variety of experiences with guest artists, teachers, and clinicians who provide diversity of outlook. In turn, the department's faculty lends its expertise as guest artists, teachers, and clinicians in southeast Georgia, as well as nationally and internationally.

The music curriculum for majors at both the baccalaureate and graduate levels fosters proficiency in the creation, dissemination, performance, and teaching of music, and an understanding of its analytical, historical, cultural, and philosophical foundations. Programs for music majors also emphasize the development of habits related to life-long learning, including preparation for advanced degree work, understanding the importance of continual professional development, and the necessity and ability to adapt to changing professional demands.

The department makes significant contributions to the region's culture by offering general education courses, concerts, recitals, lectures, and clinics and by providing opportunities for non-music majors and community members to participate in music-making through a variety of ensembles. It also renders service to the University community's athletic programs and various public relations efforts.

The department maintains a commitment to music as one of the most pervasive and powerful expressions of culture, both historically in the development of modern civilization and sociologically in the artistic expression of the diverse societies that comprise our world. Through all of its activities, the department promotes a better understanding and appreciation not only of music, but of the entire world around us.

Requirements for All Music Degree Programs

Admission Requirements

All prospective music majors must pass an entrance audition in the appropriate applied area.

Performance Requirements

Each candidate for a music degree must complete applied music proficiency level requirements appropriate to the candidate's specific degree plan, as well as fulfill other performance requirements consistent with the degree plan or individual course objectives. The appropriate applied music teacher will assist in this area.

Enrollment in any applied music course, including Junior Recital and Senior Recital, is by permission of the instructor and/or the department chair of music.

A jury examination in the appropriate applied area will be taken during the examination week or shortly before the end of each semester. Students not majoring in music who take applied music lessons may take a jury examination upon the recommendation of the applied instructor.

Recital requirements: Prior to performing a graduation, junior, or senior recital, the candidate must pass a recital approval examination no fewer than three weeks before the recital date.

Group Piano Placement/Exit Examination

A placement examination in piano is required of all transfer students. Freshman music majors with prior keyboard experience should also take the placement examination. A maximum of four credit hours of group piano is allowed toward graduation requirements. All music majors must pass the group piano exit examination.

Music Theory Placement/Exit Examinations

A placement examination in music theory is required of all transfer students. Freshman music majors will take the placement examination. Placement exam results are for advisement purposes only. Each music major must pass (70 percent or better) the music theory exit exam. No student may register for any upper-level theory course unless the theory exit exam is successfully completed.

The requirements stated above for exiting the lower-level theory sequence apply regardless of grades received in the lower level theory courses.

Music Major Progression Requirements

Music majors must earn a minimum grade of "C" for each music class that applies toward graduation in order to progress in the music program. Students earning less than a "C" grade in a sequential course offering may not take the next course in the sequence until the course is repeated and a grade of "C" or higher is earned. In addition, students must earn a minimum grade of "C" in a prerequisite course before taking an advanced course in the same subject area.

Music majors will be expelled from the degree program if they fail any individual required music course twice, or any combination of three (3) required music courses during the undergraduate degree program.

In the event a music major receives a "D" or an "F" in a required music course the first time they take the course, the instructor will notify the student, the student's advisor, and the department chair, in writing, that the student is on probation in the music program, will only have one more attempt to pass the course with a grade of "C" or higher, and will no longer be a music major if they fail to pass the course on the second attempt. The notification will also state that the student must meet with the instructor before retaking the class to discuss reasons that led to the unsuccessful attempt and to establish a supplemental study program to remediate the stated deficiencies. If this is the second course that the student has failed, the advisor will also email the student with a reminder of the policy and request a meeting in which the student and advisor will discuss reasons for the difficulty and possible ways to improve the student's success, including a reduced course load or referral to the Academic Success Center. The student and/or advisor may request the presence of course instructors in this meeting.

In the event that a music major fails an individual required music course twice, or any combination of three (3) required music courses during the undergraduate degree program, the advisor will notify the department chair, and the department chair will notify the student that they have been dismissed from the major. The student may file an appeal within ten (10) days of receipt of the notification by making a written request to the department chair who will follow the procedures outlined in the Student Handbook.

Dismissal from the Music Program does not affect the ability of the student to continue in another major in the University; and music courses already taken may count towards the requirements of a music minor program or a Bachelor of General Studies degree, if desired. However, a student dismissed from an undergraduate program in the Music Department may not transfer to any other music program if any of the failed courses are music common core classes. If the three failed courses pertain solely to a specialized area (music education, performance, etc.) or if the area head determines that a student's progress in their specialization is inadequate, the student may transfer to another music program if they have the consent and support of the faculty in the new area or the department chair.
