Curriculum Action Notice

From:

Academic Affairs Committee

Date:

Oct. 6th, 2009

This is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee concerning proposed curricular actions. Please forward any comments or concerns in the next 10 days to the AAC chair, Jeffrey Bossworth , 206 Pinecrest Manor, ext. 4762.

 

 

  1. 1.     COURSE DELETION: 4460: PRACTICAL LEADERSHIP AND ADMINISTRATION IN MUSIC

 

Rationale for deletion:  Compliance with NASM standards.

MU 4460 is cross listed at the graduate level with MU 5560.  Currently the number of graduate courses that are cross listed with undergraduate courses is too high with respect to NASM standards.  The department seeks to delete the undergraduate cross listing of this course (MU 4460) to improve our compliance with this standard.             

 

Course Title: PRACTICAL LEADERSHIP AND ADMINISTRATION IN MUSIC

Last semester and year course was offered:  Summer 2009

 

  1. 2.     PROGRAM CHANGE: MUSIC (MINOR)

 

Rationale for change: 

            Reduce the number of credits required for the Minor in Music.

            Prior to the 120 hour curricular revision music minors were able to complete the required 4 credits in their major performance area in two terms of study (2 credits per term).  As result of the 120 hour changes first-year music students now take applied instruction in their major performance area at 1 credit per term, which means that a music minor would now needs more than 2 semesters of study to complete the requirement.

            This reduction in credit hours reflects the department’s original intention with the minor requiring two semesters of applied instruction in the major performance area.

            This reduction would lower the total number of credits for the Music Minor from 24 to 22 which is still well above the required number of credits set forth by the university and by NASM.

 

List all changes:

                        Reduce credits hours in major performance area (MAP 22_ _) from 4 credits to 2.

 

  1. 3.     COURSE CHANGES: A WHOLE BUNCH OF WIND BRASS MUSIC COURSES WITH THE SAME CO-REQUISITE CHANGE

 

Purpose and nature of change: Add co-requisite to clarify department ensemble participation policy.

As a component of every music degree program at MU, students are required to complete a specific number of ensemble credits (MEN courses).   It has been a long-standing department policy, presented in the Music Department Handbook, that student are required to enroll in one large ensemble appropriate to their primary instrument or voice during each term that they are enrolled in applied instruction (lessons on their instrument or voice).  This curricular action does not add any additional requirements to any of the music degree programs but serves to clarify expectations for ensemble participation.
