Assessment
and Goals
:

Students enrolled in composition will be evaluated on the quality and quantity of compositions during the semester. Students composing shorter pieces for solos and small ensembles will be expected to compose more pieces than students composing longer works for large performance groups.  Student compositions will also be assessed on how effectively forms and devices are utilized. Imaginative solutions to compositional challenges (for example, transitions) will be analyzed for creative execution.

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THE MUSIC DISCIPLINE CURRENTLY HAS STUDENTS INTERESTED IN HAVING COMPOSITION BE THE AREA OF SPECIALIZATION. ALL MUSIC MAJORS ARE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE SEVEN ENROLLMENTS IN A COMBINATION OF INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE STUDIES, MUS 1200-1222 AND MUS 3200-3222. BY ADDING MUS 1223 AND MUS 3223 TO THE LIST OF SPECIALIZATION AREAS, THE COMPOSITION STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO MAJOR IN MUSIC WITH COMPOSITION AS THE AREA OF SPECIALIZATION.

THIS COURSE WAS MUS 3500, COMPOSITION, IT WAS SPLIT INTO TWO COURSES: 1223 AND 3223
