Music Major

The liberal arts degree with a single major in Music, referred to as Track 1, has been constructed primarily for students who have a strong interest in music and who desire a broad liberal arts education. This major, available under the Bachelor of Arts degree, strives to develop students who are both academically and musically trained and to prepare them for graduate study, if that is their goal, or to choose from a variety of careers following graduation. The objectives of the major include the development of a broad base of information about music history and music theory through comprehensive instruction in these areas. The major prescribes a minimum of 48 semester hours in music courses.
