How to Declare a Major in Music

If you are considering a major in music, contact Elaine Stroh in 1-316 Dewey Hall (estroh@ur.rochester.edu). She will assign you to an advisor and help you set up a meeting.

Once you're ready to declare your major, you should bring to your advisor the blue Approval Form for Majors and Minors, available in 312 Lattimore Hall. Fill out the form with your advisor and then bring it to the music department chair for an authorized signature.

Advanced Placement (AP)

Students who have taken the Advanced Placement (AP) exam in music theory and earned a score of 4 or 5 should enroll in MUR 111: Theory I in the fall of their first year.
