MISSION STATEMENT

The College of Music serves as the preeminent center of music study among all Jesuit Colleges and Universities throughout the United States and recognizes the historical role of music in the Roman Catholic Church. The College of Music offers professional and liberal arts music programs in a rigorous academic environment. Students are prepared for music professions in a manner that reflects the Jesuit ideals of truth, service, and justice. The College of Music provides the campus, region, and nation with musical activities demonstrating the university’s commitment to the arts.

ACCREDITATION

The College of Music, founded in 1932, is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music. The college also holds memberships in the Association of American Colleges, Jesuit Educational Association, National Catholic Educational Association, and the American Music Therapy Association. The music education curriculum is approved by the Louisiana State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education for teacher certification in the State of Louisiana. The music therapy program is approved by the American Music Therapy Association.

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Admission to the College of Music requires every candidate to complete a satisfactory performance audition or music industry studies interview and portfolio submission, in addition to normal university admission. Candidates are required to complete the College of Music Application prior to scheduling their audition or interview on one of the published dates. Contact the College of Music for specific requirements.

SCHOLARSHIPS

The College of Music administers talent-based scholarships annually for music majors. These awards vary according to the student’s potential for continued musical and academic progress, and the performance needs of the college. Retention of a music scholarship depends on satisfactory musical and academic progress and the student’s fulfillment of performance requirements as stipulated in the scholarship contract.

Only students pursuing degrees in the following programs are eligible for music scholarship consideration: Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Music Education, Bachelor of Music Therapy, and Bachelor of Arts in Music.

PERFORMANCE STANDARDS AND PROFICIENCIES

All B.M., B.M.E., B.M.T., and B.A. students are required to pass a music reading proficiency examination which consists of singing at sight samples of music in compound and simple meters and modulations to closely related keys. Ordinarily this examination is an integral part of the second-semester sophomore theory course.

Every candidate for a music degree must display a minimum proficiency in piano. An examination to determine such proficiency is ordinarily given at the end of the sophomore year. Students not meeting requirements by this time must continue to study piano until the required standards are met.

A senior recital is required of all bachelor of music candidates except the B.M. with Emphasis in Music Industry Studies and B.M. with Elective Studies. A junior recital is also required of all B.M. Performance candidates. Candidates for the degrees B.M.T., B.M. with Emphasis in Music Industry Studies, and B.M. with Elective Studies are required to make at least one appearance in a recital during their period of study. This appearance must show on transcripts as Junior Recital. All students must stand jury examinations each semester that they are enrolled in applied study except for the terms in which they are subject to recital juries.

Individual degree programs and departments stipulate a variety of specific proficiencies. Students must consult their advisers concerning these requirements.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS AND ELIGIBILITY

In addition to satisfying the university graduation requirement of a 2.0 minimum cumulative grade point average, departments within the College of Music adhere to certain grade point and course requirements. The following departmental requirements apply. Students majoring in music education must earn the minimum grade of C in all music and education courses. Additional requirements and requirement of last 30 hours of coursework at Loyola are listed in this bulletin under the Department of Music Education. Music therapy majors are required to earn a minimum grade of C in all music therapy courses (MUTY).

MUSIC EDUCATION

The College of Music offers a program of study leading to a bachelor of music in music education degree with teaching certification in K — 12 vocal or instrumental music. As part of the teacher education unit at Loyola University New Orleans, the College of Music also offers coursework leading to post-baccalaureate certification (see Graduate Bulletin). The College of Music is aligned with the Department of Education and Counseling at Loyola University and thereby demonstrates a commitment to engaging all resources needed to prepare teacher candidates to acquire the knowledge, dispositions, and skilled actions necessary for K — 12 student achievement in music.

Music education candidates are prepared to cultivate relational thinking, advocate for growth of the whole person, and develop a discerning mindset about their vocation to professional praxis. In this way, the teacher preparation process also fulfills the university’s mission and the tradition of the liberal arts. These underlying commitments are integrated into coursework, fieldwork, and clinical practice. Music education candidates gain competence in professional teaching standards, a variety of communication methods, and collaboration skills.

ADMISSION AND RETENTION IN MUSIC EDUCATION

Prerequisites to the music education major include:

1. Admission to the College of Music;

2. Declaration of music education major;

3. Successful completion of EDUC A100;

4. Completion of an interview with teacher education faculty members;

5. Evidence of knowledge, dispositions, and skilled actions appropriate to program objectives and the folio-based program assessment plan.

Music education candidate progress is determined by assessment measures employed at transition portals 1, 2, 3, and 4.

STUDENT TEACHING

The culminating experience in teacher education is student teaching. Student teaching is a full-time, off-campus, school-based experience comprising a full semester. During student teaching, the teacher candidate is expected to assume all responsibilities of a certified teacher. Student teaching is clinical practice supervised by one or more faculty members in the music eduction department and a cooperating teacher in the school. Further information regarding student teaching may be obtained from the Music Education Handbook, available in the College of Music.

Upon successful completion of student teaching, teacher candidates qualify for application for the bachelor of music degree and certification with the state of Louisiana. Faculty review may lead to the removal of a teacher candidate if it is determined that the candidate’s knowledge, dispositions, or skilled actions do not meet the standards of the program assessment plan. Also, faculty review may lead to probation for a given period. The services of the university counseling center are available for the purpose of career counseling to assist student teacher candidates.

STATE CERTIFICATION IN MUSIC EDUCATION

To be recommended by Loyola University New Orleans for certification as a K — 12 vocal or instrumental teacher in Louisiana, the teacher candidate must fulfill all the requirements specified by the department for the degree program in music education. The degree program incorporates all the requirements for certification by the State of Louisiana for teaching in grades K – 12. Certification requirements for Louisiana including reciprocity with other states are established by the Louisiana State Department of Education and are subject to change. Any such changes will be incorporated into the teacher preparation programs.
