Overview

If you’re passionate about music and want to explore multiple academic and career options, Music - Liberal Arts Emphasis program from University of Northern Colorado offers an ideal fit. You’ll integrate a broad, deep program of musical study within a classic liberal arts curriculum. The Music BA offers all the benefits of our Bachelor of Music degree—outstanding and dedicated faculty, extensive performing opportunities and membership in an elite community of extraordinarily talented collegiate musicians.

Like all degree programs in the School of Music, the music BA features small classes with lots of one-on-one attention from faculty. You can explore a wide range of musical styles and genres while building your proficiency as a musician and performer. You’ll also gain the full value of a liberal education, developing strong skills in writing, research, critical thinking and communication.

Your Future in Music

The Bachelor of Music degree allows you to keep many options open for your future. If you choose to continue your studies in music, you’ll have first-rate preparation for graduate school, with the qualifications and skill set to gain admission to highly competitive programs. However, the degree’s broad liberal arts component enables you to choose many other career and academic pursuits, which may or may not be related to music.
