[1] Mission

The human spirit is enlightened and elevated through the creation, presentation and transmission of our common musical culture. To this goal, and in consonance with the mission of the University and of the College of Fine Arts and Communication, the Department of Music prepares tomorrow's performers, music teachers, entrepreneurs and professionals in and through the discipline of music, and brings performances of national prominence to Arkansas and the region. The Department of Music also provides music education experiences for children and adults through the Community School of Music, opportunities for university students from all disciplines to enrich their own general education by taking courses in music and performing in ensembles, and service and outreach to Arkansas public schools.

[2] The Honors Program in Music

The Department of Music's Honors Program provides outstanding music students the opportunity to do additional creative projects and research. To be eligible for admission, a student must have a 3.0 GPA overall and a 3.0 GPA in music courses. This program will include successful completion of MUS 4310 Special Studies in Music.

Students who are interested in the honors program should petition to participate by writing a letter to the departmental Honors Committee (1) stating that he/she meets the GPA qualifications for the honors program; (2) describing the proposed project (research, composition, lecture/recital, etc.); and (3) listing proposed committee members for his/her project.

Students should discuss projects with their proposed committee members prior to writing their petition and secure the commitment of one faculty member to serve as chair of the committee and supervise the project. The department Honors Committee will review the petition and inform the student of approval.

[7.5] Recitals

All music majors, except first-semester freshmen, are required to appear in a general recital at least once each semester. During the senior year, an individual, full-length recital is required. However, at the discretion of the major professor, and after consulting with the department chair, BA music majors and music education majors may give this recital jointly with another music major or may substitute an alternative project.
