Music Program Areas of Study

The music program also offers a liberal arts degree as well as coursework and performance experience for students who wish a deeper understanding of music to be part of their education.

Bachelor of Music Education

This professional degree prepares students to a high level within the discipline of music, including performance, theory and history, and, at the same time, prepares future teachers for careers of distinction and leadership. The central philosophy of the degree is that music teachers can be most effective only by first becoming accomplished musicians themselves, capable of performing, conducting and analyzing at a sophisticated level.
