Graduate Student Diagnostic Exams

Music History and Music Theory Diagnostic Exams for Graduate Students

All graduate students are required to take diagnostic examinations in music history and music theory at the beginning of their program. These tests assess undergraduate knowledge of music history and theory. 

The diagnostic exams are administered to admitted students during the School of Music's Graduate Student Orientation, held the week before autumn semester.

If one or both exams are not passed, students will be required to take appropriate remedial course(s) that will not count toward their degree.
