The Bachelor of Arts in Music is a comprehensive program that provides extensive instruction in technical music skills and interpretive and creative approaches to music within the context of a broad liberal arts degree. Musical skills are developed through studio instruction, ensemble participation, solo performance, study of supporting music courses, and a final capstone experience. The program’s major goals for its students include developing competence and leadership in the major area of study and preparing students for a variety of careers in the field of music and for entry into graduate programs.
Areas of Study
Students may earn the Bachelor of Arts degree with concentrations in voice, keyboard or instrument (violin, viola, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and French horn).
Advanced placement in certain courses of instruction in music is possible when proficiency in that area is proven by performance or placement tests, and with the approval of the music faculty.
