Introduction

The University of New Mexico is a member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM). Requirements for entrance and graduation as set forth in this Catalog are in accordance with published regulations of NASM.

In addition to the admission requirements stated under the College of Fine Arts section of this Catalog, music students must also have approval for an emphasis in an instrument or voice for the degrees Bachelor of Music and Bachelor of Music Education, and must also have been accepted into a studio for instruction in the principal instrument or voice. 

Degree plans are described below. In addition to stated course requirements, students must satisfy general College of Fine Arts and University requirements for graduation.


Major Study Requirements

A grade of "C" or better (not "C-") is required in all courses used to fulfill degree requirements for the Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Arts in Music, Bachelor of Music Education, Music minor and Music Education minor. This requirement does not apply to courses offered exclusively on a CR/NC basis.

Students who enroll in any one of these programs should read the paragraph in the College of Fine Arts section of this Catalog under "Scholastic Standards," which permits the faculty to exclude from a program any student whose GPA in his or her major field falls substantially below 3.00. Furthermore, the faculty reserves the right to disqualify from further enrollment or participation in departmental programs:

  1. students who fail to demonstrate reasonable progress in their professional development in music,
  2. students whose conduct reveals a persistent inability to work effectively with others or an unwillingness to adhere to generally recognized standards of professional behavior, or
  3. students who do not consult their assigned advisor prior to registering each semester.

Specific departmental requirements relating to recitals, special examinations, auditions and similar matters are described in the Department of Music Undergraduate Handbook, available online at the Music department Web site.

All transfer students are given a theory, ear-training and sight-singing proficiency examination for the purpose of determining competency in these areas. If test results reveal deficiencies, transfer students are required to remove such by enrolling in and successfully completing one or more semesters of the theory curriculum.


Bachelor of Arts in Music

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) with a major in Music is designed for the study of music within a liberal arts curriculum. For the student who is not seeking a professional music degree but who desires a solid foundation in the study of music, the areas of musicianship, performance and history provide the core of courses toward a basic intellectual grasp of the art. Students who additionally seek to major in other areas (double major) or to take a large number of courses in a pre-professional program (pre-law, pre-medical, etc.) are encouraged to enroll in the B.A. in Music. The B.A. in Music cannot be used as a major in combination with the Bachelor of Music. The B.A. in Music is permitted as a major in combination with the Bachelor of Music Education.

Bachelor of Music Education

  • Concentrations: Instrumental; Vocal.

Students completing the requirements and curriculum stated below receive the Bachelor of Music Education (B.M.E.) degree and are eligible to apply for Level 1 Licensure in Music, K–12, in the State of New Mexico.

Official acceptance to the degree program is granted upon admission to the College of Fine Arts as a Music Education Major (see College of Fine Arts Admission). Satisfactory completion of MUSE 194 Introduction to Music Education and MUSE 195 Introductory Teaching Practicum is necessary for official acceptance to the Music Education degree program. Students may be eligible for acceptance upon completion of two semesters; early application is advised. Students seeking only endorsement for music teacher certification must be admitted to a Teacher Education Program (see Admission to College of Education Programs). Students pursuing teacher licensure are considered de facto Music Education majors, even though their enrollment status may be non-degree, and are required to complete all Music and Music Education course work required for the B.M.E. if this course work does not appear on their transcripts

Students have a period of one year to remove any deficiencies revealed during the admission process. Students already enrolled at the University of New Mexico are not eligible to transfer to the College of Fine Arts or to take 300- and 400-level professional courses until this admission process is completed. Exception is made for students with earned baccalaureate degrees upon recommendation of the department and for students transferring from other institutions. Transfer students may be enrolled in the College of Fine Arts on a provisional basis for a maximum of two semesters, during which time they must complete the admission process.

All transfer students are given a theory, ear-training and sight-singing proficiency examination for the purpose of determining competency in these areas. If test results reveal deficiencies, transfer students are required to remove such by enrolling and successfully completing one or more semesters of the theory curriculum.

Any MUS or MUSE courses required for the B.M.E. cannot be attempted more than three times. An attempt includes receiving any letter grade (A through F), W, WNC, CR, NC, I or AUDIT. Exceptions include Group Piano, Music Education Lab, Concert Music, and Ensembles.

Students must pass the Music Education Advisory Review (MEAR) before enrolling in 300-level music education courses. The purpose of the MEAR is to assess the music education candidate’s suitability for a music teaching career. Candidates appear for an interview with music education faculty that includes evaluations of musicianship, communication skills, and personal dispositions. Prerequisites for the MEAR are 1) admission to the College of Fine Arts and 2) successful completion (grade of "C" or better) of MUSE 194, MUSE 195, MUS 150, and MUS 150L. For complete details, consult an advisor.

The faculty reserves the right to disqualify from further enrollment or participation in the music education program:

  1. students who fail to demonstrate reasonable progress in their professional development in music,
    –or–
  2. students whose conduct reveals a persistent inability to work effectively with others or an unwillingness to adhere to generally recognized standards of professional behavior,
    –or–
  3. students who do not consult their assigned advisor prior to registering each semester.

Level 1 Licensure in Music, K–12, in New Mexico allows one to teach any music class at any level of instruction. Where two or more music educators are employed by a single school district, however, a division of responsibilities between instrumental music and vocal/general music commonly exists. The Department of Music, therefore, offers two planned programs in music education, an Instrumental concentration and a Vocal concentration.

Prior to student teaching, students must fulfill the following requirements:

  • Admittance to the College of Fine Arts.
  • Completion of all prerequisite courses for student teaching. Consult an advisor for further information.
  • A 2.50 GPA in music and music education courses and a 2.0 GPA overall.
  • Satisfactory completion of the piano proficiency examination. Consult the Department of Music Undergraduate Student Handbook for further information.
  • Satisfactory completion of the Music Education Advisory Review (MEAR).
  • Application for admission to a Teacher Education Program in the College of Education. This process includes passing two parts of the New Mexico Teacher Assessment Tests: Basic Skills and General Knowledge, and a screening interview with the Music Education Committee. It is suggested that students initiate this process at least one year before the beginning of the semester in which student teaching is planned to begin. Consult the assigned advisor for details.
  • Other requirements, including evidence of liability insurance and evidence of a completed tuberculosis skin test or chest X-ray. Consult an advisor for additional information.

The required recital is normally given during the last semester in residence.

Instrumental Concentration

Includes emphases in strings, winds, percussion, piano or guitar. NOTE: A student’s emphasis is determined by his or her principal instrument; however, for a piano or guitar emphasis, the student must also be proficient in a secondary instrument (strings, wind or percussion).
