The BA in Music at Northeastern engages students in the study of how music works and the many contexts in which it is created and received. Students encounter a wide range of musical repertories, theoretical approaches, and research strategies. While many students opt to major in BA in Music alone, many others enroll as part of a double major. This is especially true of young scholars who are aiming for careers in engineering, sciences, business, and fields in the humanities and social sciences, but who still want to pursue their interests in music. Students in the BA concentration take a variety of classes in history, theory, and ethnomusicology, and they may be active performers, participating in our many ensembles and taking private lessons. Students also participate in a wide array of co-ops and are encouraged to explore opportunities that conform to their interests. Recent alumni have gone on to graduate programs in music at Princeton University, Lesley University, and the University of Hartford; other graduates are now attending law school, medical school, and are pursuing careers outside the academy. Program Outcomes: Students graduating with a B.A. in Music History and Analysis are expected to have acquired the following competencies: Music Theory skills, History and Literature skills, Research skills.
