The Bachelor of Music in composition gives students a foundation for professional and/or commercial compositional activity or graduate degree study leading to college/conservatory teaching credentials in composition and theory.  Possible careers include film-scoring, orchestrating and arranging, publishing, music administration, copyist work, worship leadership, and performance.
