Music

Bachelor of Arts

Music is the study of the soul.

Are you a creative person who is musically inclined? Do you love listening to music? If so, you may be interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Music.

The Bachelor of Arts in Music is an academically oriented degree, aimed at liberal arts students who would like to study music as a humanistic discipline. The degree offers music majors a broad range of musical knowledge with specialization at the higher levels in such areas as orchestration, arranging and conducting, performance, counterpoint, music history and music theory. The program prepares students to go on to graduate studies, or one that combines music with other disciplines such as music and liturgy, arts management and administration, communications, business or simply to provide a firm discipline for the mind and as a source of lifelong enjoyment. In addition, students seeking a career in teaching may now pursue a degree in Music Education by simultaneously working towards a B.A. in Music and a minor in Education (includes teaching licensure and student teaching).
