Graduate Learning Outcomes for University of Wyoming Department of Music
Graduate Assistants help faculty members teach undergraduate classes. Duties will differ in each class, but are likely to involve grading, taking roll, tutoring students, lecturing, demonstrating, and class set-up. All duties are performed under the supervision of the faculty member. A student with a full assistantship will be assigned 18 clock hours of responsibilities each week.
Students are mentored by their studio teacher and other faculty members. The mentoring relationship is one of the best parts of the graduate experience. Both student and faculty member will work to establish a positive, professional relationship.
All graduate students will take comprehensive exams and submit a Plan B project near the end of their last semester. Performance majors will perform a graduate recital under the direction of their studio teacher. Complete information is available in the Graduate Handbook.
The Graduate Seminar will meet once in March and once in April 2013. This is a new service to graduate students to assist in furthering your success at UW, helping with GA issues, enhancing your career goals, and helping you get to know other graduate students in music.
