Undergraduate students can choose between a Bachelor of Arts in Music or a Bachelor of Music (with or without a concentration). The B.A. allows students to study music within a larger context of a liberal arts education. In comparison to majors leading to the bachelor of music (B.M.), less emphasis is placed on studies specific to music. In contrast, the B.M. is a professional degree to prepare students to become highly skilled music educators, music therapists, performers, composers, and conductors.
For graduate studies, the Master of Music will allow music professionals to advance their careers in performance, conducting, music education, and music therapy.
