The Bachelor of Arts in Music program offers undergraduate students an opportunity to study music within the broad framework of Liberal Studies. The program emphasizes the liberal arts and music research skills to prepare students for a wide range of careers in music and beyond. Students audition for the School of Music and pursue the same music core courses, private lessons, and ensembles, but the curriculum affords greater flexibility for exploring disciplines outside of music.
Liberal Studies courses provide students with a foundation in critical thinking, a foreign language, technological literacy, and writing that complements their musical studies.
