New Bachelor of Arts in Music Degree Available This Fall

Starting Fall 2012, students at McNally Smith College of Music will be able to pursue a new degree: The highly flexible Bachelor of Arts in Music. The B.A. in Music offers a solid core of music studies (including private lessons and ensembles) and liberal arts courses, as well as a high level of freedom in substantial elective credits.

Speaking to the new degree’s importance in a contemporary music education, Liberal Arts Division Chair Jan Weller says, “Our Liberal Arts division takes a lot of pride in connecting what we do with artists and [their work]… What we find is that students who are musical — or creative in general — tend to be creative in a lot of different ways. We want to honor that and expand on that, and this degree is a way to do that.”

Benefits of the Bachelor of Arts degree include a highly customizable curriculum — perfect for a student with a wide range of academic interests or who wants to explore the wide course offerings available. In addition, A B.A. student has a valuable opportunity to minor in a secondary subject area, including but not limited to Music Performance, Music Business, Live Sound, Hip-Hop Studies, or the new 21st Century Musician track.
