Preliminary examinations, both oral and written, are required prior to admission to candidacy. These examinations cover not only the student's field of specialization and the cognate fields, but also the broad general field of music and the relationships between music and other disciplines. These examinations are not necessarily based upon the specific individual courses taken by the student, although course work will be exceedingly helpful in preparing for the exams. They are intended to explore the student's breadth of knowledge, ability to acquire information independently, and maturity of judgment. During the first year, each doctoral student is given a list of 60 to 75 works from which to choose or be assigned ten works on which to be examined at the general oral preliminary examination. These works should be studied both analytically and historically. The oral preliminary examination will be based on these scores. The major field examination, consisting of a review by the Composition Department of the scores and tapes submitted in fulfillment of the major field requirement, is also administered. Scores will be accepted or rejected by the Department on the basis of their maturity and originality.
