This degree is designed for students who want to study music in the context of a general liberal arts education, but who do not plan to pursue careers in music. It may also be convenient for students who enter Hunter with a large number of transfer credits in music. Requirements are:
All music majors must demonstrate elementary proficiency at the piano. Students should plan to fulfill this requirement during their first year of study. A passing grade on the piano proficiency examination is a prerequisite for the third semester of study in music theory (MUSTH 32000). Students entering Hunter with limited keyboard background may take MUSPF 21300-MUSPF 21400 (Piano I and II) for elective credit or private lessons in piano at their own expense. The Music Department office has a list of recommended piano teachers.
