Bachelor of Arts inMusic

Program Overview

Majoring in Music involves the study of the history of music, music theory and composition, and the performance of one or more instruments. How does music convey emotions, thoughts and ideals? How are certain vocal techniques developed? How do computer-based music technologies work? You’ll specialize in one of three tracks (Applied Music, Music History, or Music Theory and Composition) as you take 44 credit hours towards a Bachelor of Arts degree.

Students in the Music major expand their creativity, analytical, research and writing skills while studying music performance, programming, analysis, composition, history, literature, education and worship music. The music program is led by accomplished and caring faculty who give one-on-one attention to students in a nurturing community where competition is downplayed.
