Students declaring an emphasis in music as one of their three BIS concentrations must abide by all guidelines and stipulations detailed in the BIS student handbook.
Courses taken in fulfillment of the music area emphasis must total a minimum of 18 credit hours and will be determined in consultation with the music BIS advisor and approved by the department chair (or dean, if the advisor and chair are the same person). These courses should directly and demonstratively contribute to the goals set forth by the student in his/her approved BIS application.
Please note that according to the BIS student handbook, courses taken in completion of the university General Education requirements will not count toward a BIS emphasis. In other words, “double-dipping” is not allowed.
