DIPLOMA IN CREATIVE AND PERFORMING MUSICAL ARTS (DCPMA) A 4-year course of study with a heavy concentration on the applied and theoretical arts. The major areas available are Asian Music, Band Conducting, Choral Conducting, Composition, Dance, Instruments (Strings, Winds & Percussion), Music Education, Piano and Voice.
This is designed for students with outstanding performance ability who do not wish to work for a baccalaureate degree. Instituted in 1986, the DCPMA replaced the Teacher's Diploma, Artist Diploma, and Certificate of Proficiency.
A pre-baccaulaureate course, as was the practice when the College of Music was a Conservatory of Music, the program consists of a heavy concentration on performance and musicianship. Passing the UPCAT is not a requirement, but applicants must pass written, aural, solfegge examinations, and a performance audition. It is designed for students with outstanding performance ability who do not wish to work for a baccalaureate degree. The choice of major areas is much wider than that in the CM: piano, voice, strings, woodwinds, brasswinds, percussion, conducting (band or choral), dance, Asian music, composition, and music education. Graduates may proceed to the BM course.
BACHELOR OF MUSIC (BM) A 5-year course of study with a wider coverage providing a well rounded preparation for a career in music. Major areas include Composition, Conducting (Band, Choral and Orchestral), Dance, Instruments (Strings, Winds and Percussion), Music Education, Musicology, Piano and Voice.
The program provides a well rounded preparation for a professional career in music revolving around a core of applied and theoretical subjects. The Bachelor of Music was first offered as a two year course (beyond the Teacher's Diploma) in 1930, a four-year course in 1949, and a five year course in 1959 due to the inclusion of the GE curriculum instituted by the University.
There are three requirements for admission: a) passing the UPCAT, b) passing the written, aural, solfegge examinations, and c) passing the performance auditions. The program aims to provide a solid foundation and well-rounded preparation for a professional career in music. The student may major in instruments (keyboard [piano], violin, guitar, woodwinds, brasswinds, percussion) voice, composition, conducting (band , choral, and orchestral), dance, musicology, and music education. The GE component consists of 42 units. Three public recitals are required.
MASTER OF MUSIC (MM) This is a 2-year course of study designed to develop a balance between depth in an area of specialization on the one hand a breadth of competence on the other. For inquiries and requirements, see the Graduate Program Office Rm 216.
