The study of music affords the student opportunities not only to develop self-discipline, creativity, critical thinking, and an appreciation for human achievement, but also yields life-long intellectual and personal benefits.

Overview

Students majoring in music are expected to gain knowledge and skill in the areas of performance, aural skills and analysis, composition and improvisation, history and repertory, and technology. Lander’s music curriculum focuses on heightening the student’s musical awareness and sensitivity to the broadest possible spectrum of music in preparation for possible graduate study and the pursuit of a career in music.

Conceived within the tradition of a liberal arts education, the Bachelor of Science in Music degree combines a strong music component with a broad menu of elective courses, allowing the student to tailor the program to individual needs and career goals. The program is divided into three components: 1) general education requirements, 2) core music requirements, and 3) electives. Students may choose electives from any combination of music and non-music courses. Elective hours may be used to satisfy requirements for a minor in a non-music field.
