In addition to fulfilling the requirements for the major, students seeking honors will be expected to complete the following additional work:

The department must approve the proposal.

2. The Senior Honors Tutorials, Music 495-496, in fall and spring of the senior year. An overall grade of A- on the thesis or project itself is required for Honors credit.
