Music Major

Major Overview

55 credits

Why music?

The music major is a general liberal arts curriculum for the student with a strong interest in music who does not plan to pursue a performance career. The student may wish to continue their education in a specific master’s degree program or pursue a different career option. If the student is planning to complete both the B.A. in music and the M.A. in Instruction degree leading to teaching licensure, the B.A. in music electives must include all of the required music education course work. Contact the music education program director for specific details.
