Foreign Study

The annual Music Foreign Study Program (FSP) rotates between London, UK and Vienna, Austria, and provides a unique opportunity for students to combine the study of music with an intensive exposure to musical performance.

Foreign Study Program

Students reap the benefits of being located in a major city, such as London (2017) or Vienna (2018). Attending concerts and rehearsals, meeting performers and artists, and viewing the fine musical tradition of England or the European continent at first hand will offer unique learning opportunities outside the classroom. Enrollment is limited to 16 students. Selection will be based on a student's demonstrated interest in music by virtue of his or her past study and demonstrated ability to perform.


Music 20 (Introduction to Music Theory), plus either Music 21 or 22 and one music history course recommended. Also, two terms of a Music Department Performance Laboratory (Music 50), or one contract of individual instruction (Music 53-58). Students who anticipate not being able to complete the prerequisites prior to the FSP term should speak with the FSP director for that year.
