The Music major under the Bachelor of Arts degree is a liberal arts program for the student interested in combining the discipline of music training with the breadth offered by a liberal arts curriculum.  Five tracks are available to pursue within this degree program.

The Music Education major is a professional Bachelor of Music degree designed to prepare the student for a teaching career and provides licensure in music for grades K-8 and 5-12. The Composition-Theory and Performance majors are professional Bachelor of Music degrees designed to prepare the student for 1) a career as a composer or an artist-performer, or 2) entrance to graduate schools where further excellence in composition or in a performance area might be pursued.

General Requirements for Undergraduate Majors

Music majors on all degree programs must choose an area of applied music (MUS APPL xxx/540:xxx) for specialization and must meet the proficiency standards of the School of Music. The total required applied hours indicated for each major must be completed on one of the specialization instruments or voice on which the student auditioned. Dividing the required applied hours among various instruments, or voice and instrument(s), will not satisfy the applied music portion of any of the degree programs.

Auditions: Admission to the School of Music requires successful completion of an audition in the main performance area.

Piano Proficiency: Required of all majors. All freshmen will enroll in group piano class or applied piano continuously (semester by semester) until piano proficiency has been passed. For Music Education majors, requirements must be completed prior to student teaching.

Vocal and Instrumental Competency: Required of all Music Education Majors. Instrumental students (Specialization B) will attend special sections of MUS ED 1100 (570:010) Instrumental Techniques taught by vocal/choral faculty. Keyboard majors enrolling for Specialization A must also satisfy vocal proficiency as determined by the voice faculty.

Foreign Language: Bachelor of Music Performance voice majors are required to complete one semester (5 credits-UNI) at the college/university level in each of two foreign languages. Ten (10) semester hours of credit in a foreign language are strongly recommended for students whose applied concentration is voice (Music Education major) and for all non-voice majors on the Bachelor of Music Performance program.

Large Ensembles: In addition to applied music, all music majors must participate in at least one of the designated large ensembles for a minimum of 8 semesters (7 semesters for students in the music education program). Participation in large ensembles will be continuous from the first semester of residence until completion of the requirement. Participation in ensemble [MUS ENS 1120 (530:012)MUS ENS 3120/5120 (530:112g)] does not satisfy the large ensemble requirement. Auditions are required for all ensembles in the School of Music, and students will be assigned to ensembles according to audition results.

  • Wind and percussion students will be assigned to an appropriate instrumental ensemble. All wind and percussion students who are pursuing the degree of Bachelor of Music in Music Education are required to participate in marching band for a minimum of two semesters. (It is strongly recommended that this requirement be fulfilled during the freshman and sophomore years.)  B.A. Music: Jazz Studies majors will be assigned to the appropriate large jazz ensemble (sections 02, 03, or 04).
  • In the fall semester, participation in either Concert Band or Jazz Band II may satisfy the large ensemble requirement for students in select degree programs or those who have completed their respective marching band requirements.  All students must meet audition requirements for the two above ensembles.
  • String players will participate in the orchestra.
  • The initial choral ensemble for all freshmen voice students will be either UNI Singers or Women's Chorus. Freshmen are limited to participation in only one vocal large ensemble. Students performing targeted roles in UNI Opera main stage productions are exempt from ensemble participation for four (4) weeks preceding the final performance of the production.
  • Composition and Keyboard majors will audition for either an instrumental or a choral large ensemble. Keyboard majors in the music education program shall participate in an ensemble appropriate to their specialization.

Program Certificates

Artist Diploma (I) (II) Graduate Certificate

The Artist Diploma is a non-degree-granting professional program awarded by the School of Music for the successful completion of performance studies combined with general music studies. The curricular content of the proposed Artist Diploma program is designed to provide the student aspiring toward a professional career the opportunity to study and perform solo literature and chamber music without taking all the academic course requirements of a masters degree.

The Artist Diploma serves the needs of international and national students who are extremely talented, career minded, and dedicated to the art of music-making. Admission is considered once the student has completed a baccalaureate degree, or the international equivalent, and taken an in-person audition (a recording would be accepted if the in-person audition would pose undue hardship). Applicants not holding the baccalaureate degree or its equivalent but who have extensive study with a master teacher and noted performing experience, may apply. Interested students should contact the Associate Director of Graduate Studies within the School of Music.

Students may pursue the Artist Diploma I concurrently with or in addition to a graduate degree program in music. Only four (4) elective credits (no applied or ensemble credits) may be double counted. Admission to a graduate degree program in music does not guarantee admission to the Artist Diploma certificate program; a separate audition is required.
