Bachelor of Arts in Music

The Bachelor of Arts in Music is a 120 credit hour program designed to be completed in eight semesters. It is a liberal arts degree combining core music study in music theory, music history, and solo and ensemble performance with a concentration in another discipline. This will prepare the student for a career in either music or the other discipline, or in a career that combines the two. For example, students will be able to combine music and business, music and communications, music and psychology, or music and pre-law, etc.

The curriculum for the Bachelor of Arts in Music degree includes one hundred and twenty (120) hours of course work. The curriculum consists of a 36 credit hour general education core, six hours of foreign language, 54 credit hours of music courses, 21 hours in a non-music concentration area, and three hours of free electives. The 21 hours of a concentration area are chosen in consultation with the student’s advisor. Twelve of these hours must be at the 300 level or above.
