Bachelor of Arts in Music
This degree provides a comprehensive study in music, as well as a choice of an 18-24 semester hour concentration or minor in an identified discipline: Business, Health Science, Mass Communication, Music or approved alternative field. This program is appropriate for undergraduates who wish to major in music as part of a liberal arts program, irrespective of specific career aspirations. At the same time, the supplemental concentration, especially if further enhanced by a wise choice of additional electives, affords opportunity for graduate and/or vocational opportunities in fields integrating with, or independent of, music. Full-time students must register for a performing ensemble each semester they are enrolled, as assigned by the director of music. All music majors are required to attend a designated number of concerts and recitals each semester. Career opportunities include graduate studies in arts in health care (Occupational Therapy, Music Therapy, Counseling, Gerontology), Business (Music Industry, Arts Management), Mass Communication, Theatre, or Music (Performance, Opera, Studio teaching, Church music).
