Request more information about this program or any other Marylhurst program.

Marylhurst University's Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Music is a flexible program, designed to provide you with core music skills while allowing you to explore other music interests. In our small, intimate classes and private lessons, you'll receive guidance and one-on-one support to develop your musical talent.

Comprehensive music program

By integrating a traditional music education with other academic disciplines in a liberal arts setting, you'll develop a greater appreciation of music and a stronger ability to articulate its importance in society. For example, songwriters might choose to explore offerings in literature and writing, composers might take classes in media studies, and entrepreneurs could pursue the 24-credit business and management certificate.

Whatever path you choose, a Marylhurst B.A. in Music program will prepare you to become an active member of your community as both a musician and a persuasive advocate for music.

The B.A. in Music degree requirements are designed to give you:

  • Comprehensive musicianship – Demonstrate the Marylhurst Music Core learning outcomes 
  • Performance – Perform in ensembles and on your primary instrument or voice
  • Advanced musical learning – Explore other aspects of music such as music technology, composition or pedagogy
  • Integration with liberal arts – Synthesize the components of your musical liberal arts program into a public presentation that highlights your fields of interest

Career paths

Our B.A. in Music program will introduce you to the rigors of careers in performance, teaching, composition, church music, conducting, studio musicianship, recording and other music-related fields. The liberal arts component of the degree provides you with a strong multidisciplinary foundation for a lifetime of learning. Graduates have a solid foundation  to pursue a master's degree.
