Description

For students not otherwise enrolled. Preliminary examinations in field, both oral and written, are required prior to admission to candidacy. These examinations cover not only the student's field of specialization and the cognate fields, but also the broad general field of music and the relationships between music and other disciplines. These examinations are not necessarily based upon the specific individual courses taken by the student, although course work will be exceedingly helpful in preparing for the exams. During the first year of doctoral study each student in the program will be given a list of 60 to 75 works from which to choose or be assigned ten works on which to be examined during a general oral preliminary examination. These works should be studied both analytically and historically. The preliminary examinations will be based on these scores, but it is a comprehensive examination and may include other material.
