Vocal emphasis students must be in a choral ensemble as their major ensemble and an instrumental ensemble as their secondary ensemble. Instrumental emphasis students must be in an instrumental ensemble as their major ensemble and a choral ensemble as their secondary ensemble.

It is expected that students desiring the music education (combination emphasis) major will have competency on a secondary instrument. Those not meeting this secondary competency must register in the appropriate applied music courses. In case of questions, a secondary instrument competency audition will be required as determined by the department.
