Mus 056 Graduate Music History Entrance Exam

The Graduate Entrance Examination in history is a diagnostic test designed to assess entering graduate students' knowledge of music history as presented in traditional undergraduate history sequences. Students are expected to have a basic knowledge of genres, composers, compositions, and musical styles from the Middle Ages through the Twentieth Century. The examination will include questions, listening examples and score excerpts from all musical periods. Students who do not pass the exam will be required to take and pass Mus 529 Graduate History Review, before registering for any advanced graduate music history courses. The exam is given in June and September of each year. Contact the School of Music & Theater for more information about specific times.
