+ Vocal majors must complete two semesters of modern language. Vocalists must choose French, German, or Italian. Spanish will not fulfill the language requirement for a vocal major. Students who place into a second semester language course or above (e.g., 334-10200 Elementary Italian II) can fulfill the modern language requirement by taking two different languages. Students who do not place into a second semester language course or above, or who have no prior language training, must take two semesters of a single modern language.

*** An additional semester of modern language is recommended.

# Students who place into level 102 or higher of modern language meet the minimum requirements for modern language proficiency. These students fulfill the 3-credit modern language requirement by substituting 3 credits of liberal arts elective in place of this requirement.

++ Students entering the School of Music in a non-performance degree will take two credits of private lessons each semester until they are accepted into the performance degree. Students entering the performance degree prior to the sophomore year will substitute music electives for any missing lessons study.

* Brass students may substitute two semesters of Brass Choir (at 0.5 credit each semester) for 1 credit of Chamber Music. Percussion students take 2 credits of Percussion Ensemble.

** Students may fulfill the requirement for Fundamentals of Music Theory by scoring 84 percent or higher on a placement exam. Students who score below 84 percent on the exam must take the course, and they take the lower number of music electives.

* Saxophone music education majors add 0.5 Class Horn.
