Music (Bachelor of Arts)

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Why choose Music (Bachelor of Arts)?


BA Music scholars ask questions such as: What role does music play in our society? How do music and psychology relate? How can music influence work in other fields?

This program is designed for you if you love music but don’t plan to have a professional career as a musician. You'll enhance your understanding of the musical arts by receiving extensive instruction in music theory, composition, ensemble performance, music history, and literature. During the course of your studies you'll also gain creative thinking skills, research and analytical capabilities, written and verbal communication skills, as well as rigorous practical and theoretical musical training.

Career opportunities

As a BA Music graduate, you'll be prepared for career opportunities in areas such as arts administration, elementary music education, media studies, digital arts, and the non-profit sector. A BA Music degree can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, or veterinary medicine.
