Music (Arizona State University)
Arizona State University’s four-year Bachelor of Arts degree in music is a liberal arts degree which helps prepare students for a number of different careers in music. This program is more flexible than some music programs and assists students in developing both mainstream and alternative music competencies for a wider range of career options.
This accelerated program entails a combination of foundational background education in history and theory as well as the modern practice of composition and performance. Instructors offer students an opportunity to view music as an important part of world history, culture and society. Music history classes include 18th, 19th and 20th century music theory.
Students must pass a musical theory diagnostic exam and entrance audition to the School of Music prior to enrolling in this program.
The first two years of this program can include two credit hours each week of studio instruction which provides students with comprehensive coaching for string instruments, percussion, piano, voice and woodwind instruments.
A minimum of 120 credit hours is required to complete this degree.
