Degree Requirements & Term-by-Term Layouts

Each SMTD student will choose one of the curricula offered at the appropriate academic level. That choice will be governed by previous training and experience and should be approved by the department concerned. School of Music, Theatre & Dance students are typically admitted to a specific curriculum or degree program as first year or transfer students, but with departmental approval, it may be possible for a student to change majors at a later date.

Students will follow the curriculum of the year in which they were admitted to the program. Should requirements change in any given year, students complete either the curriculum under which they were admitted in its entirety, or the new curriculum in its entirety, but not a combination of both.

Students should contact Deedee Ulintz or Ben Thauland with questions regarding degree requirements and term-by-term layouts. For academic advising, please contact
