  • Admission Requirements

    Applicants seeking admission to the Master of Music - Performance Degree program must take the A-State Department of Music entrance examinations in music history and written and aural music theory. The results of this examination assist in planning each student’s exact course of study. A grade of “A” or “B” must be achieved in any remedial coursework. Remedial coursework may not be counted as credit toward the degree. Arkansas State University graduates who begin graduate studies within eighteen months of graduation will not be required to take the entrance examination providing they received an “A” or “B” on all undergraduate music theory and history coursework.
