Bachelor of Arts in Music
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree allows for students with a wide variety of experience and interests to pursue musical study. Students in the B.A. degree program may wish to work in some aspect of the music industry. Others may desire to keep music as an integral part of their lives, but not necessarily as a principal occupation. Others may pursue a double major with other curricula such as business administration, communication, theology, or psychology.
An audition is required to establish an appropriate performance course level.
