Bachelor of Arts in Music
Career Opportunities Graduate studies in arts in healthcare (Occupational Therapy, Music Therapy, Counseling, Gerontology), Business (Music Industry, Arts Management), Mass Communication, Theatre, or Music (Performance, Opera, Studio teaching, Church music). Course of Study 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. The Mission of the Department of Music: In the Department of Music, we provide students the ability to learn, perform and teach extraordinary music – and her related disciplines – at the bachelor’s level, post-graduate level and, ultimately, the master?s level. Our graduates advance in their professions by focusing on scholarship in all the liberal arts, technical and artistic proficiency in their particular fields, the latest pedagogical techniques, high-quality artistic expression and critical and thorough self-reflection. We also strive to integrate the life of the Department of Music into the Brenau community and into the larger civic milieu by means of performing, teaching, service leadership and global citizenship.
