Potential music majors are admitted to the program following a holistic examination that includes an audition, interview, and singing diagnostic exam. We are an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music. The music major is directed through the Music Division in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Elizabethtown College.
Our students gain an in-depth background in music theory, music history, aural skills, keyboard harmony and the creative and performance skills essential to any music career. The bachelor of arts in music degree is an excellent choice for those with a strong interest in music who want a liberal arts education to prepare for graduate school or careers such as music performance, music history, music business, acoustical engineering, or mass media and communications. As a music major in Pennsylvania, you’ll be close to some of the largest cultural and performance hubs on the east coast. Just a quick train ride from New York City, Philadelphia and Baltimore, you’ll have opportunities to experience the biggest names in the industry.
