The PD requires only two years of music theory; there is no requirement for humanities and music history. Approximately 74 semester units are required for completion. Students whose English skills are inadequate for BM study may be admitted to the PD program initially. This allows thestudent to improve his or her English skills while continuing musical studies, before moving into the BM program.
