*Basic Musicianship is not part of the Music Major curriculum requirements. Although students may need to take the course to be successful in the Major, this course does not count toward the Music Major. It does count towards one of your humanities courses.

** This course is offered every three semesters. Check with Dr. Campbell to confirm the next offering.
*** Observation hours required for this course as follows: EDUC 205=50; SPED 310=25;
