MUS 490 Senior Project

Requirements and Procedures for the Senior Project

If scheduling a recital, please follow the Mus 491 Senior Recital instructions.

The Senior Project is the culminating activity for music majors in the Jazz Studies and Liberal Arts concentrations. It gives you a chance to synthesize all the skills and knowledge that you have acquired. It shows you, your peers, and the music faculty that you have earned your right to a bachelor's degree in music.

Examples of activities that qualify as Senior Projects:

  • Perform a recital (If scheduling a┬árecital, follow the Mus 491 Senior Recital instructions.)
  • Use the Wolford Recording Studio to produce a recording of your performing.
  • Teach a student-taught class MUS 199.
  • Give a lecture/demonstration that includes some performance on a topic of your choice.
  • Write original music and supervise a performance and/or recording of it.
  • Write a comprehensive research paper.

You may have an idea for a senior project that does not fit any of the descriptions above. Discuss it with your advisor. It may be a perfectly suitable idea that no one has thought of before.
