Bachelor of Arts Degree

The BA degree provides an appropriate background for prospective candidates for advanced degrees who are preparing for such careers as musicologists, composers, music librarians, arts administrators, and music therapists.

Music & Culture

The B.A. in Music & Culture degree engages students in the study of music from the perspective of humanistic and social science scholarship. Students study music from the perspectives of research, criticism, and interpretation with an emphasis on historical and ethnographic scholarly approaches. The degree's goal is to highlight music as a culturally expressive form rather than solely as an objectified art.
