Music Major: Music Liberal Studies Option B.A.
What is liberal studies in music?
If you’re serious about your interest in music, but also want a broad liberal arts education, the liberal studies option is the music degree program for you. You’ll study music history and music in world cultures, as well as music theory and analysis. At the same time, you’ll continue to train your ear and practice through lessons and performance ensembles. This Bachelor of Arts degree option also requires study of a foreign language. As a student of this program, you’ll be prepared for graduate study leading to a master's or doctoral degree.
