Sophomore Barrier Exam

All students pursuing a music major degree program will perform before the music faculty no later than the conclusion of their second full year of study, or after a maximum of two semesters in residence for transfer students, after they are admitted by audition to the Music Department.

The content of this performance varies by specialization; requirements are available from the Music Department. The faculty will use the quality of the student’s performance as one component of evaluating whether the student should be permitted to continue in his or her intended music degree program.
