Bachelor of Arts in Music
The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in music is intended for students who desire music as an integral part of their lives but who do not necessarily intend musical endeavor as a principal occupation. The BA degree in music can be combined with other curricula in a double major. Business administration, communication, and psychology are combinations often selected. These combinations are valuable for those wishing to work in some aspect of the music industry. An audition is required to establish an appropriate performance course level.
