Bachelor of Arts in Music
In the Bachelor of Arts program at the Lamont School of Music, students can explore their musical curiosity and performance aspirations, while having flexibility as to where they invest the sharpest and deepest of their intellectual inquiries and creative endeavors. Approximately 1/3 of coursework is involved with music, while 2/3 of courses will be in the liberal arts. Additional undergraduate opportunities are especially rich for study and a potential double major in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. The BA also boasts 3+2 programs that allow students to complete both the Bachelor of Arts in music and a master's degree in either Education (BA/MA) or, Business (BA/MBA) in 5 years. Because the BA contains a performance component, an audition is required. All music majors study individually with faculty.
