Career Outlook

A music degree builds the foundation for a career in professional performance, music education or composition and music theory.  A music degree also prepares you for positions in the music industry (recording, publishing, radio programming, manufacturing, music retail) or as a church music director. Employers in many fields take notice of applicants with music degrees; music study requires a high level of discipline, musicians are creative and positive and musical aptitude is known to be correlated with other desirable skills.   

UMSL music graduates have been readily accepted into outstanding graduate programs, including our own Master of Music Education degree program.  Many are pursuing successful careers in music education, business, and industry, or as professional performers.

Faculty Overview

Music faculty members have received recognition for distinguished achievements in conducting, composition, and performance. The faculty is also recognized for research in musicology, music theory, and music education. Part-time applied music lecturers are professional musicians.

The Department of Music is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.

Undergraduate Studies

General Education Requirements

General education requirements apply to all majors, except that students in the B.M. with elective studies in business and B.M. in music education degree programs are not required to take a foreign language. Courses required for degree programs may not be taken on a satisfactory/ unsatisfactory basis. Students must receive at least a C in each music course and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5 (music education 2.7) in all music courses to meet degree requirements.

Non-music majors may complete no more than 8 hours in music-performing organizations (EN PER 1400, University Chorus; EN PER 1410, University Singers; EN PER 1420, University Concert Band; EN PER 1500, University Orchestra; EN PER 1520, University Symphonic Band, et. seq.) toward graduation, including credit transferred. Courses in applied music (private lessons and performing organizations) do not fulfill the humanities general education requirement. M H L T 1150, Drumming Cultures of the World; M H L T 1160, Musical Journey through Latin America; M H L T 1170, Musical Journey through the Far East; or M H L T 1180, Musical Journey through Africa will meet the non-Euro-American study requirement.

General Education Learning Outcomes for Music Students

  • Students will demonstrate enhanced aesthetic appreciation and musical discrimination.
  • Students will demonstrate knowledge of a wide range of world music.
  • Students will demonstrate knowledge of relationships among the arts, societal influences on music and musical influences on society.

Degree Requirements

Admission to all music degree programs is by audition and interview to demonstrate musical aptitude and potential, moderate technical proficiency, and seriousness in selecting music as a four-year course of study. In addition to the applied music audition, placement examinations in music theory and music history may be required to confirm students’ prior experience in these areas. Auditions are scheduled from January to May for the fall semester; a limited number are held in December for the spring/winter semester. Students in applied music must pass a junior-standing examination to confirm their level of performance skills for enrollment in AP MUS 3440AP MUS 3459 or AP MUS 4440AP MUS 4459. This examination is usually taken at the same time as the applied music jury for the fourth semester of enrollment in AP MUS 1440 - AP MUS 1459.

Declaring the Music Major

Upon admission to the University, a student seeking to major in music is first designated as a "pre-music major."  At the end of the student's first semester, a panel of music faculty convenes to evaluate that student's efforts and accomplishments (both musical and academic) during the semester.  Following this evaluation, the student receives written notification about his or her status.  At this time, the student may be (a) allowed to officially declare music as his or her major, (b) asked to continue studies and a pre-music major for another semester, or (c) instructed to seek a major outside the Department of Music.  If the student is asked to continue as a pre-music major, the process will repeat during the following semester.  This policy applies equally to first-time college students as well as students transferring from other institutions.

Evidence of sound musicianship, a close acquaintance with an appropriate portion of musical literature, and the ability to bring it to actual performance are required for graduation in all music degree programs. Students in the bachelor of music-performance emphasis fulfill this requirement with junior and senior recitals. Students in all other degree programs fulfill this requirement with a senior recital.  In some cases, upon the recommendation of the student's applied teacher, the senior recital (for non-performance majors only) may be replaced by participating in three regularly scheduled student recitals during the last two semesters of applied music study, or by performing for a special panel of faculty members.

Other Requirements

Music majors are required to enroll in an approved ensemble (University Symphonic Band, University Wind Ensemble, University Singers, University Chorus, or University Orchestra) each semester, to study one applied area progressively each semester, and to enroll in the appropriate pedagogy and literature seminar each semester of the degree program. Music education majors are exempt from these requirements during the student teaching semester. The following specific ensemble enrollments, depending upon the applied music area, are required:

  • Wind and percussion students—University Symphonic Band or University Wind Ensemble;
  • string students--University Orchestra;
  • voice students--University Singers (or by special permission, University Chorus);
  • keyboard and guitar students--any approved ensemble, but those in the bachelor of music in music education program must successfully audition for and enroll in an ensemble compatible with the teaching certification they are pursuing.
  • Instrumental students may be required to participate in additional ensembles to enhance their musical development.

Majors are required to appear in performance at the department's discretion and to attend a prescribed number of departmental recitals. Non-keyboard players are required to pass an exam in piano proficiency: PRACTM 2180, Piano Proficiency IV, or equivalent for instrumentalists; or PRACTM 3290, Piano Proficiency VI, or equivalent for vocalists.

The music department may require students to pass a placement test to enroll in the next level course, provided this or an equivalent test is administered to all students seeking to enroll in that course.

Career Outlook

Many graduate students in music education will already hold full-time music teaching positions. A graduate degree in music education allows for continued professional growth. Music specialists may refine their teaching expertise, add to their understanding and knowledge about music and educational processes, become more specialized in a specific emphasis area of music education (choral, instrumental, general music or music technology), or any combination of these professional growth areas.

Graduate-level work in music education is often required to renew a teacher's certificate or to satisfy professional growth requirements specified by an employing school or school district or to advance to new positions within the field of music education.
