Music, BA

The Bachelor of Arts degree in music is designed for students who want to study music but do not necessarily plan a professional career in music. Students will get a much broader, more general education than students seeking a Bachelor of Music degree.

Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn to develop a degree of musicianship that will enable him or her to function as a performer.
  • Develop an understanding of the principles and processes of music as it occurs within a variety of cultural and historical settings.
  • Demonstrate a broad, general education in music rather than one of intensive musical study leading to a professional degree.
  • Achieve proficiency in a foreign language and expand their appreciation of global perspectives in music.
  • Demonstrate critical thinking and problem solving through a more diverse selection of liberal arts course offerings.
  • Cultivate an understanding of qualitative and quantitative research methods
