The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) program in music provides a unique opportunity to blend extensive professional work in music with studies in the liberal arts. It allows students who wish to earn a degree in music the opportunity to devote more time to liberal arts studies than is permitted in the program leading to the Bachelor of Music (B.Mus.) degree. Students accepted into the B.A. program must complete the same core of creative and professional music study. The program offers you the opportunity to work extensively in music while devoting more time to liberal arts studies than is possible in our programs leading to the bachelor of music degree. Many B.A. in music students pursue minors and double majors, which can help prepare you for a variety of careers. For example, combining the B.A. in music and the jazz studies minor allows you to prepare for work in jazz and commercial music. Other B.A. in music students have pursued double majors and/or minors in music history, broadcast and digital journalism, psychology, and political science. Our alumni have gone on to pursue graduate study and careers in such areas as musicology, music theory, business, law, and arts administration.
