Welcome and thank you for your interest in Stony Brook's Department of Music! We offer a rigorous Bachelor of Arts in Music degree that provides a thorough education in music history, theory, musicianship, keyboard, and performance. The degree requires a minimum of 63 credits in music courses.
To become a music major at Stony Brook, students must pass rudimentary exams in music theory and musicianship (aural skills), as well as pass an audition on an instrument or voice. Exams and auditions are given in February of each year, and during the first week of classes in the Fall and Spring terms.
If you are interested in becoming a music major in Fall 2015, or have questions about the music minors, please contact Professor Margaret Schedel, Director of Undergraduate Studies, at firstname.lastname@example.org for information about how to apply.
