Students who possess a degree in music are prepared for careers as archivists, arts administrators, composers, elementary, middle, and high school teachers, and historians.

High School Preparation

High school coursework that will support a student in his or her pursuit of a degree in music includes experience in Band or Orchestra, Chorus, Music, Music History, and Music Theory.

Enhance Your Experience

Students who earn the general music degree will oftentimes pursue a double major or minor in music education—instrumental or music education—vocal, music industry, or history.
