The College of Music and Dramatic Arts is comprised of the Department of Theatre and the School of Music. The Department of Theatre offers theatrical productions under the joint auspices of the LSU Theatre and the Swine Palace Productions, the latter being an affiliated actors' equity professional company. Divisions in the School of Music are: Academic Studies, Bands, Ensembles and Conducting, Instrumental, Keyboard, Music Education, and Voice/Opera. Both the Department of Theatre and the School of Music offer comprehensive degree programs from the baccalaureate through the doctorate.

The primary goals of the college are: 1) to offer advanced training in the performing arts to students who are committed to developing their innate talents; 2) to make the performing arts a cultural asset in their lives and the lives of others; and 3) to prepare graduates for leadership roles and careers in the performing arts. The School of Music and the Department of Theatre at LSU have long been recognized regionally and nationally for the quality of their performance and research programs. Their faculties have distinguished themselves as specialists in their fields and many currently lead their respective discipline's professional associations. Student groups have appeared as invited featured performers at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and at national and regional conferences and conventions.

The college provides numerous public performances and opportunities for artistic learning and cultural enrichment throughout the year for students and the community at large.

At the present time, the national office is located on this campus in the French House.

The primary objectives of Phi Kappa Phi are to promote the pursuit of excellence in higher education and to recognize outstanding achievement by students and faculty through election to membership and through various awards and fellowships. Phi Kappa Phi is

unique because it recognizes superior scholarship in all academic fields, rather than restricting membership to a limited field. Juniors in the top five percent and seniors and graduate students in the top ten percent of their classes may be invited to become members of Phi Kappa Phi. New LSU Phi Kappa Phi members are initiated and honored in the spring semester each year and wear identifying ribbons on their academic gowns at commencement exercises.

The School of Music offers several curricula and special courses of vocational as well as avocational nature. These curricula are outlined in the following chart. The vocational programs prepare students to be performers, composers, scholars, or teachers and culminate with the undergraduate degree, Bachelor of Music.

Persons wishing a broader variety of subjects in addition to a basic foundation in music may follow the curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Arts in Music.

Participation in the various performing organizations is also available, based upon audition. Private lessons are offered to students who qualify through audition, based on the availability of teacher time.

The curricula in music education meet requirements of the Louisiana State Department of Education for accrediting various types of music instructors in the Louisiana public schools and are approved by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the National Association of Schools of Music. The School of Music is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music.

BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE REQUIREMENTS

Effective August, 1998, the music concentration under the bachelor of arts in liberal arts was transferred from the College of Arts and Sciences to the College of Music and Dramatic Arts. The program was also renamed the bachelor of arts in music. The B.A. in Music degree is a viable alternative for those students who prefer a more flexible and less intensive music curriculum than is possible under the Bachelor of Music Education or Bachelor of Music curricula. The B.A. in Music degree could prepare students for careers in arts administration, the music business industry, or for further study at the graduate level in music history or music theory.
