About this Event
The Music Theory placement exam is recommended for students who plan on studying music theory.
The placement test for music theory courses at Harvard will be offered both in-person and remotely the week before fall 2023 classes begin. Please register to take the music theory exam. You will be contacted directly by the department to schedule an exam.
The placement is a diagnostic that will help us recommend whether you should take the preparatory Music 2 (offered in spring semester), 51A (Theory I, fall), or jump to 51B (Theory II, spring; this option is rare). The placement also assists with sectioning students by experience and interests. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. You may visit the Department of Music website for more information.
Harvard College placement exam results help incoming students select the classes that will be most appropriate for them to begin their course of study and achieve their academic goals. All fields of study are open to all students at Harvard; your placement exams will help you know where to get started.
