The School of Music at North Texas State College, accredited by
the National Association of Music Schools for graduate as well as under-
graduate study, has a threefold purpose. In the first place, it endeavors
to supply a good musical "climate" for the entire college and community.
Numerous recitals, faculty and students, concerts by performing or-
ganizations and a Fine Arts series gives every music lover on the campus
opportunity for recreation and musical growth.
In the second place, it is the responsibility of the School to offer
opportunities for students who do not wish to major in music but wish
to have opportunity for further musical experience and expression by
participating in bands, orchestras, choirs, et cetera, and through individ-
ual study of voice, piano, organ, et cetera. Many of these students take
regular courses in theory, appreciation, and history of music.
The third and most difficult function of the school is to train pro-
fessional musicians and professional teachers of music. For this under-
taking, curricula have been made covering the whole field of music
study in both undergraduate and graduate levels. The principal areas
of music study are: (1) for majors in composition, church music, music-
ology, and dance bands, (2) majors in piano, voice, organ, and orchestral
and band instruments, and (3) for vocal and instrumental supervisors of
public school music.
The following degrees are offered:
Bachelor of Music
Bachelor of Arts
Bachelor of Science in Music Education
Master of Music
Master of Arts
Master of Science
Master of Music Education
The Board of Regents of the college has authorized the School of
Music to prepare a curriculum leading to the degree, Doctor of Philoso-
phy, beginning June 1, 1951.
