B.A. in Music

Prepare to meet the high expectations in the very competitive field of music. As a music major, you'll move center stage with confidence in theory, sight-reading, and the understanding of artistic and cultural forces. Become a refined performer, producer, or composer of music the world is waiting to hear.

What you'll study
The bachelor of music program blends tradition and technology. Core courses explore sight-reading and ear training, and they cover commercial theory and the ensemble. Choose your concentration in commercial and popular music or in vocal, piano, or instrumental performance.

How you'll learn more
Take advantage of incredible rehearsal and performance spaces and our extremely low student-faculty ratio. Improve your performance skills in NSU’s ensembles, bands, and choirs that sing and play regularly for the local community in a variety of musical styles. As an intern, you can connect with working musicians, vocalists, composers, and conductors in the vibrant South Florida cultural scene.

Where it can take you
Become the leader of the band, the pianist for the choir, or the music teacher that everyone loves. Showcase your talent as a soloist or in an ensemble of professional musicians. Record your own compositions and explore your musical vision for a lifetime of rewards.
