More Information

2003-2005 Jacobs School of Music Bulletin Changes

Since the publication of the 2003-2005 Jacobs School of Music Bulletin, the Jacobs School of Music Council will approve several changes to the curriculum. The most important of these (along with corrections of some misprints) will be listed here.

Please note that these changes apply to students entering in semesters after the changes were approved. Students who entered before that date may petition to have the new requirements apply to their degrees; ordinarily this means switching to all the requirements of the most recent Bulletin.

Time limits for graduate degrees in the School of Music

Masters degrees

Time Limit for Degree Completion

Students admitted to a master's degree program must complete all degree requirements within seven years after beginning graduate study. Students who do not complete their work within the prescribed time limits must be readmitted to the major field (through interview, submission of documents, or audition, as appropriate to the major) and meet current degree requirements and make any other curricular changes indicated by the departmental chairperson and the director of graduate studies.

Petitions for extensions must be sent to the director of graduate studies, who considers them on a case-by-case basis, giving preference to continued professional involvement in music. If granted, extensions last no more than one year. In addition, any course taken more than seven years earlier must be revalidated according to the procedures of the department offering the course.

These time limits are suspended for students in active military service for the duration of that active service.

Doctoral degrees

Time Limits

  • Before Qualifying
    • Examinations D.M. students must complete all course work (including those courses transferred from other schools, but not including those on the master's degree) and begin qualifying examinations within a period of seven calendar years from the date of matriculation in the doctoral program.
    • Ph.D. and D.M.E. students have 10 calendar years, including the master's degree.
    • Students who do not complete their course work within the prescribed time limit must be readmitted to the major field (through interview, submission of documents, or audition, as appropriate to the major), meet current requirements, and make any other curricular changes required by the director of graduate studies and the major field department. If a student is readmitted to the major, the term of readmission is three years. If the student has not completed course work by that time, he or she must once again meet the terms for readmission described above.
    • In addition, any doctoral course taken more than 10 calendar years earlier must be revalidated according to the procedures of the department offering the course. D.M. and D.M.E. students must receive permission to revalidate courses from the director of graduate studies. Ph.D. students must receive permission to revalidate courses from the director of graduate studies and from the dean of the University Graduate School.
    • Proficiencies (music history, music theory, keyboard, performance, language reading, language grammar, language diction, musical styles) more than 10 years old must be revalidated. Proficiencies must also be revalidated for students beginning a second degree more than 10 years after beginning a first.
  • Qualifying Examinations
    • Qualifying examinations, written and oral, must be completed within one calendar year.
  • After Qualifying Examinations
    • D.M. students must complete the degree within seven years after passing the qualifying examinations. After that time, students must be reinstated to candidacy. To be reinstated to candidacy, students must (1) obtain the permission of the department chairperson and the director of graduate studies, (2) fulfill any new departmental requirements in effect at the time of the application for reinstatement, (3) pass a written qualifying examination, the content and duration of which will be agreed upon by the student's examination committee and the director of graduate studies. If reinstatement is granted, it is valid for a period of three years. Revalidation of course work is not required.
    • Ph.D. students follow the reinstatement procedure outlined in the bulletin of the University Graduate School.
