Music courses offered during Summer Session include Guitar Class, History of Jazz, Class Piano, Music Appreciation, Music in American Culture, Basic Music Theory and more. All instructors are regular College of Music faculty. Any student may enroll in MUEL courses, regardless of major.

This summer, we are also offering an online section of the first semester of the required History of Music course, offered this Maymester. Music grads and undergrads can now also take History of Opera MUSC 4772/5772 to satisfy a Musicology requirement.

Students may also register for any level of a PMUS (applied lessons) course, as appropriate, through the Division of Continuing Education. Only regular College of Music faculty will teach under this special summer program. Graduate assistants teach only during the fall and spring semesters.

  • Each credit hour represents 3 hours of instruction
  • Tuition is $401 per credit hour
