COURSE OF STUDY

The BFA in Inter-Arts is designed to nurture and develop a mature interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary artist, critic, or scholar. The three tracks leading to the Inter-Arts BFA degree lay strong developmental foundations coupled with advanced project creation by students in all tracks. Each track provides a capstone experience in which the student reveals advanced interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary accomplishment as well as a unique personal voice.

Students majoring in Inter-Arts can choose one of three tracks: the Dual Discipline Track (Track 1), the Interdisciplinary Arts & Technology Track (Track 2), or the Musical Theatre Track (Track 3).

Laptop Requirement. All entering Interdisciplinary Arts & Technology (IAT) students are required to participate in the PSOA Laptop program. Please see requirements posted on the PSOA Laptop Requirement web page: www.uwm.edu/psoa/laptop.

The three Inter-Arts tracks leading to the degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts require a minimum of 120 credits for graduation distributed as follows:

MUSICAL THEATRE TRACK (TRACK 3)

Admission Requirements
To be admitted in good standing, applicants (incoming freshmen, current, or transfer students) must meet general University academic requirements. In addition, applicants for the Musical Theatre Track of the Inter-Arts program must submit the following in one complete packet for review by Musical Theatre Track faculty in order to attain a live audition interview:

1. A completed application form;
2. Copies of high school (incoming freshmen) or college (current or transfer students) transcripts (unofficial copies are acceptable for this purpose); and
3. Two confidential letters of reference, preferably from instructors familiar with the student’s artistic and/or academic abilities. Letters should be submitted in signed and sealed envelopes and will remain confidential and the property of UWM.

Applicants are requested to submit these materials in one packet and may do so in person or by mail to the address listed below; they will not be accepted via email. This preliminary packet should be submitted separately from the initial application for admission to the University. The recommended deadline for submission is two weeks prior to the entrance audition dates posted on the website: arts.uwm.edu/musicaltheatre. Complete application packet should be submitted to: Musical Theatre Application, UWM Dance Department (Mitchell Hall, Room 345), PO Box 413, Milwaukee, WI 53201.

Entrance Audition
After submitting these materials, applicants to the Musical Theatre Track of the Inter-Arts BFA degree program must audition for entry into the Musical Theatre Track. Entrance audition dates are scheduled during the fall semester specifically for current and transfer students for entry in the spring and in the spring semester for all prospective students interested in entry the following fall. The audition consists of the following: a) a writing exercise; b) two prepared and contrasting vocal solos; c) a memorized theatrical monologue; d) learning and performing a group dance combination; and e) an optional movement solo. Students are strongly encouraged to begin the program in the fall term to progress most logically through the program. Applicants who demonstrate a level of maturity, experience, and professional performance potential in at least two of the three areas of study during the audition process have an excellent opportunity for acceptance into the program.

For more information about the Musical Theatre Track and the application and audition procedures, please visit: arts.uwm.edu/musicaltheatre.

Several required courses of the Musical Theatre Track will have placement-level testing before or during the first week of classes. This ensures that students are placed at the appropriate class level and receive the best training possible. Students who have extensive background in one or more of the three areas of study may test out of some courses and advance to a higher level of training, thus opening up credits for study in other related areas.

After they have been accepted into the program, students must schedule a Piano Proficiency Audition and a Theory Placement Exam to determine in which level of piano and music theory to enroll.

Piano Requirement. All Musical Theatre majors must take a Piano Proficiency audition upon entering. Depending on audition results, a student may be required to enroll in MUSPERF 001 Piano Fundamentals I & II, for up to two semesters. Proficiency for these courses requires a passing grade of B or better. If piano proficiency can be demonstrated through the Piano Proficiency audition, then two semesters of piano at the MUSPERF 100 level are required.

Theory Requirement. All Musical Theatre majors must take a Theory Placement Exam upon entering. Depending on exam results, a student may be required to enroll in MUSIC 101 Fundamentals of Music, or test into MUSIC 123 Aural Skills with 3 additional credits available toward electives. Proficiency for these courses requires a passing grade of C or better.

Once accepted, students successfully complete the program for the Musical Theatre Track and maintain a 2.75 GPA in the Musical Theatre program curriculum. Each semester, their academic and artistic growth is reviewed by the Musical Theatre Academic Committee (see Student Evaluation/Capstone Course section). Students are required to attend all classes, auditions, workshops, seminars, and performances arranged in conjunction with or as a part of their training in the Musical Theatre Track.

Transfer students must complete 40 Musical Theatre Track credits in residence at UWM in order to graduate. Level of ability must be evaluated by course instructors at the beginning of each course for proper level placement.

Students in the Inter-Arts Musical Theatre Track will be trained thoroughly in the performance skills necessary to compete in the professional world of musical theatre. Included in this Track are a solid developmental and pedagogical foundation in music (voice, theory and musicianship, piano, large and small music ensembles); dance (history of the musical theatre art form, ballet, tap, jazz, and theatre dance); and theatre (acting, play analysis, and theatre production). Students will be expected to meet the high standards set at all developmental levels of the program, preparing them for what they will encounter in the professional world. In addition, students will be able to build on their preexisting talents in a dynamic and innovative arena.

Just as students should consistently rise to the level of excellence expected in each area of study, Musical Theatre Track majors also should apply themselves as much as possible in the areas in which they may have less experience, thus equalizing their personal talents and professional performance potential. Majors who do not demonstrate a level of advancement or improvement – either artistically, academically, or both in the program curriculum may not advance, may be placed on probation, and/or dropped from the program.

Musical Theatre Track Senior Project/Capstone (FA 689 – Senior Capstone: Musical Theatre). Students are expected to create and present a juried senior project in musical theatre for performance in their senior year. It must reflect the student's artistic growth and high level of performance excellence in music, dance, and theatre.

Appeal Process
Any Musical Theatre Track student who is dropped from the program has the right to appeal. The appeals committee will consist of full-time tenure track or tenured faculty from the Peck School of the Arts Dance, Music, and Theatre departments, a faculty member of the student’s own choosing, and the Musical Theatre Track coordinator. In addition, a Peck School of the Arts Student Services advisor will be present as a nonvoting member. A student’s next recourse is to the BFA Inter-Arts degree coordinator, the associate dean, and the dean.
