Terminate a degree-major of an existing program
Bachelor of Arts - Music Major
Summary of the Changes:
The Bachelor of Arts in Music degree is a very old one. Since its inception the department has instituted two new degrees - the Bachelor of Music (B.M.) degree and the Bachelor of Music Education (B.M.E.) degree. These degrees incorporate performance as an essential element - which is not the case with the B.A. degree - and performance is considered widely to be a necessary component to any respectable baccalaureate level degree in music. As a consequence, there are no students in the B.A. program; it has ceased to serve a role in the Department of Music's curricular offerings, and so it is time to terminate the program. Department faculty have concurred.
