For The Music Major

Our music graduates are equipped with professional skills and understanding of music theory, literature, history, and performance. They build up their musical abilities and explore ways to express their Christian faith through music. As students develop their creativity and aesthetic appreciation, they are led to consider the importance and role of beauty in the music-making process. All of this growth prepares graduates for effective service in their careers and beyond.
