  • To offer and encourage student participation in a variety of ensembles and other instructional opportunities, allowing for varying musical tastes, experiences, and abilities;
  • To sufficiently challenge each music student to progress beyond the minimum requirements of a degree program, and to provide opportunities for growth beyond classroom instruction;
  • To present music in a manner that promotes it as an art form; and

The Bachelor of Arts in Music provides a broad base for a number of careers in music such as private studio teachers, and is intended as preparation for advanced graduate study.

The Bachelor of Arts in Music: Music Performance emphasis is appropriate for those students who plan to perform, teach privately, or pursue further study at the graduate level.

The Bachelor of Arts in Music: Music Education emphasis is a professional degree and provides the essential training, knowledge and skills necessary for a teaching career in choral, instrumental, or general music. The degree leads to K-12 music teacher licensure.

The University also offers a Minor in Music which allows the student to further their knowledge of music as an art while enjoying participation in music performance.​​​​​​
