About

The music major, with four possible concentrations, prepares students for entry-level positions in fields such as church music or music retailing. The curriculum requires 45 semester hours in music and allows time to complete a second major in another department. Each concentration maintains a common core of music theory, music history, piano and applied study.

Many Bluffton music graduates have gone on to complete master's and doctoral degrees.
