The Music Department at Westmont College equips students for the serious study, composition and performance of great music within the scope of the liberal arts tradition and the context of the Christian faith and worship. The primary objective of the Music - Composition is to develop skilled musicians with Christian insight into their art and craft at an advanced level. 


The Music - Composition major is designed to develop musical skills, knowledge, and attitudes. Professors place special emphasis on encouraging and developing creativity. Students majoring in music may complete a liberal arts music program or may elect to complete a track in music performance, or music composition. 

Students may also earn the professional Bachelor of Music Education (B.M.E.) degree that leads to a public school teacher credential program


The Westmont College commitment to undergraduate education means that every ounce of who we are focuses on this wonderful period of life when we make so many of the decisions that shape our ongoing journey. While more and more schools are adding graduate programs or continuing education classes, we retain our specialized emphasis on undergraduates and believe that we can offer a more effective and engaging program as a result.
