Music - Advising
Declaring a Major or Minor
Students who wish to major or minor in Music should make an appointment with the Director of Music, Charles Jurgensmeier, S.J. The director will sign the student’s major/minor declaration form (to be taken to the Sullivan Center), help work out a schedule, assign an advisor in the student’s area of study, and answer any questions the student may have.
A word of advice to all majors and minors: It is important that you enter the music theory and musicianship course sequence according to your skill level. If you are unclear about your skill level, contact the director for assistance. MUSC 144: Music Theory I and MUSC 145: Musicianship Lab I as well as MUSC 244: Music Theory II and MUSC 245: Musicianship Lab II must be taken concurrently.

Rome Center or study abroad
Caution: There are a limited number of music courses offered at Rome Center. MUSC 154: Introduction to Opera is taught regularly.
Study abroad courses require prior approval in order to count for the major. Submit a course description and syllabus (if possible), so the director can determine if the course is equivalent to a major/minor requirement.
Summer courses at other schools require prior approval to count for the major. There should be a good reason to take it elsewhere: for example, if the student is close to graduation. Submit a course description and syllabus (if possible) so the director can determine if the course is equivalent to a major/minor requirement.
