BM Music Education

The music education program offers three different specializations that lead to K-12 certification, Choral, Instrumental and Broad. While general music is common to all three programs, the broad area degree leads to certification in all three areas.

BM Performance

The Bachelor of Music with a concentration in Performance requires extensive coursework that includes courses of Applied Music, Music Theory, Music History, Pedagogy, Literature, Ensembles, and completion of both a Junior and Senior Recital.

BA Music

The Bachelor of Arts in Music degree allows students to obtain extensive musical knowledge and experience in a liberal arts setting. Students pursuing a BA in Music complete extensive coursework that includes courses of Applied Music, Music Theory, Music History, Ensembles, and a broad array of general education subjects. This degree is ideal for those students wishing to major in music, but do not necessarily want to teach music in the classroom or pursue a performance career.
