What Makes the Program Distinctive?
This is the primary liberal arts degree in music. Students who seek this degree have interests in performance studies, pedagogy, theory or history or want a solid general background in music. Some students choose to pursue graduate study in music upon completion of the degree. Many students choose to double major with another discipline or add a minor in an area outside of music opening the door to numerous opportunities.
