The Fred Fox School of Music offers a variety of courses in music that can be taken as electives for both music majors as well as non-majors.
The art and practice of music encompasses subject matter as rich and diverse as any in human experience. In addition to studies in music theory, history, composition, performance, and ethnomusicology, the domain of the musician includes history, geography, languages, business, acoustics, psychology, and sociology. The BA in Music program offers the undergraduate student a curriculum broad enough to promote these cross-disciplinary connections, but focused enough to foster deep understanding of the musician’s art, and proficiency in its practice.
The Bachelor of Arts degree introduces students to careers in the music industry such as arts management, arts journalism, and recording studio production. The degree serves as a foundation for advanced studies in music performance and music education. Bachelor of Arts in Music students often proceed into professional fields as diverse as medicine and law.
After completing foundations coursework in music history, music theory and functional keyboard skills, BA in Music students select an area of emphasis in either music theory, history, and criticism; integrated studies; or performance studies. The coursework in the major is complemented with studies in the minor area outside of music. Students often complete an optional second minor depending upon their particular goals and interests.
