This four-year program is designed primarily for students who wish to take the entire musical portion of the undergraduate curriculum without liberal arts courses. Students wishing to transfer from this program to the bachelor’s degree program may apply to do so in any year of their matriculation. They will be required to obtain the approval of both the Director of the School of Music and the Dean of Liberal Arts. The Diploma program is ideal for students who have already earned a degree in a field other than music but who want the benefit of a complete undergraduate training and education in music.
