The undergraduate diploma is awarded in all major fields at the end of four years of study upon successful completion of the Bachelor of Music program minus the following courses: Introduction to Undergraduate Studies, Introduction to Humanities, English Composition, and Humanities (Western Civilization, Art History, and Literature). The undergraduate diploma is primarily suited to applicants interested in the undergraduate program but may already have bachelor’s degree in an area other than music.
