Bachelor of Arts in Music
A degree in Music from Nazareth College not only prepares students to be accomplished musicians, it immerses them in the study of music from multiple perspectives. Our goal is to develop musical ambassadors who bring music to the community through performance and instruction.
In addition to academic instruction, the program gives students the opportunity to become technically proficient and artistically expressive musicians. You'll learn from professors who are highly trained artists and active performers. You'll find an intensive focus on private lessons, many performance opportunities, and a supportive environment that lets you perfect your talent from the first day of college to the last. Many students enrolled in the B.A. program have declared second majors in areas such as mathematics, psychology, and communications and rhetoric.
- This broad-based liberal arts degree provides students an opportunity to combine their interest in the art of music with complimentary liberal arts disciplines that allow them to pursue employment in a variety of nontraditional and emerging vocational fields.
- Students have many opportunities to perform. This includes playing in local orchestras, performing with the Mercury Opera, singing in local churches, giving concerts in Poland and participating in Community Theater.
