Bachelor of Arts in Music

The Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music emphasizes a well-rounded education and the development of critical thinking skills, providing students with a solid intellectual basis for whatever career path they choose to follow.

The flexibility of the B.A. degree makes it a popular option for those students who pursue double majors. The research and writing components make the degree a common choice for students who wish to pursue academic music studies at the graduate level.

Students graduating with the B.A. in music typically go on to graduate and professional programs in musicology, music theory, information and library studies as well as a range of careers outside of academia.
