About the College

The College of Arts, Letters, and Sciences (CALS) mirrors the same arrangement of liberal arts that were assembled in the ancient Greek academy, where they reflected the higher concerns of free citizens, and the pursuit of which were understood to liberate the spirit.

It is this philosophy that we relay to the tremendous proportion of core class students we serve across the entire university. The influence of our college can be felt throughout—in the critical thinking skills and research acumen instilled in our students.

All prospective music majors must successfully complete an audition for full admission to the department. Auditions comprise three components; students complete each of these to assist the department in the appropriate class placement:

Performance Audition: A performance audition of two contrasting pieces on a chosen principal’s instrument/voice. The results of the audition will determine placement with the appropriate private studio instructor and/or student ensemble. Additionally, the faculty uses the audition to determine whether a student will receive a scholarship offer.

Theory Placement Assessment: This assessment ensures that students are familiar with conventions of musical notation in treble and bass clef, scales, key signatures, rhythm, meters and basics of triadic harmony, and allows the Music Department to place students in the appropriate music theory course(s).

Keyboard Skills Evaluation: Each music major at UA Little Rock is required to pass a piano proficiency. This evaluation places students in the appropriate group piano course or in the appropriate level of private instruction.
