**Students are encouraged to take electives that will supplement the knowledge and/or skill base commonly used by professional theorists and composers. These may include additional instrument or style studies or may include a selection of courses for a variety of disciplines often used as a basis for composition or analysis such as art, literature, philosophy, history, etc.

Reminder: In order to graduate, students must complete 40 hours of upper-division course work (300 or higher). Music courses comprise 26 of these hours; therefore students must complete at least 14 hours of upper division courses in their electives.
