Senior Comprehensive Project

This section covers all the requirements and timelines for senior comprehensive projects in Music.

In the fall semester of their junior year, all Music majors must propose a senior project according to the guidelines of their declared concentration. By October 1 of that semester, you must meet with your advisor to discuss your proposal ideas; by November 15, you must submit your proposal. If the faculty requires you to revise and resubmit all or part of your proposal, you must do so by January 15. 

Click below on your concentration for its comprehensive project guidelines. Once you have studied your concentration’s guidelines, please read through the Senior Project Proposal Form to familiarize yourself with your concentration’s proposal requirements and then meet with your advisor to discuss them. You will then need to prepare all of these materials, which you must submit with the form, because you will not be able to edit the form and return to it later. All concentrations include written and public components. Each senior project component is graded Pass with Distinction (PD), Pass (P), or Fail (F).
