The Bachelor of Arts (B.A) or minor in Music is offered as a Liberal Arts degree in music comprised of general education, the core music curriculum, and electives. This degree allows students flexibility in enrolling in elective courses to fit a wide variety of interests. It is not uncommon to combine the B.A. in Music with another major.

All music majors and minors study and pass basic piano proficiency. Music students also perform in student recitals each semester. Students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts in Music also present a thirty-minute recital on their applied instrument during their senior year.
