The bachelor of arts degree with a major in music is designed for students who wish to pursue studies in an individualized program in musicology, church music, music therapy, music technology, or other areas. It includes the general education requirements, the music core, and additional courses in music and other fields. In the individual concentration, students may specialize in one area of music by taking music courses as electives, or they may pursue a broader program by including electives in other fields. The concentration includes a senior project as a capstone experience.
