SENIOR INDEPENDENT STUDY–SEMESTER ONE The first semester of the Senior Independent Study, in which the student engages in a creative, individual program of study in music performance, music history and literature, or music theory-composition, corresponding to the student’s degree track, which will be ultimately completed in the second semester of Senior Independent Study. The Senior I.S. in music performance leads to the presentation of a public recital 45-60 minutes in length, with a supporting document of ten pages length in the case of B.A. majors. The Senior I.S. in music history and literature emphasizes bibliographical and research methods, major library resources, and writing style, and results in a major paper at least 60 pages in length. In music composition the Senior I.S normally consists of one composition on a larger scale planned for public performance by performers or ensembles available at the College. Senior I.S. projects in music theory yield written analyses of music at least 60 pages in length. Prerequisite(s): MUSC-40100 Annually.
