Biographical or Historical Information

The FTU/UCF Music Department started in Fall 1968 in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. At that time, all students who were seeking to earn a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music were required to perform a recital in their major applied area (instrument or voice) and were required to pass a piano proficiency examination.

The College of Education began offering a post baccalaureate specialization in Music Education as part of their comprehensive Master of Arts degree in 1970/1971. With the formation of the College of Arts and Sciences in 1981/1982, Music became a separate department with its own chair and continued to offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music and Music Education with specializations in applied music, piano pedagogy, instrumental music education, choral music education, and elementary school music education.

The Master of Arts in Music was offered by the University of Central Florida Music Department in 2008/2009. The program covers an array of interests in music such as performance, conducting, jazz studies, music education, and composition. Graduate students who choose to complete a non-thesis option must either present a Graduate Recital or a Graduate Project (a written project, smaller in scope than a thesis). The Graduate Recital can take the form of a performance, composition, or conducting.
