The Bachelor of Music (B.M.) degree is the professional approach to the music major for the student who wants a strong foundation in music, combined with in-depth training in specific aspects of the art. The department offers concentrations in Choral or Instrumental Music Education and Performance (guitar, percussion, piano, strings, vocal, or winds).

Performance concentrates are required to present a senior full recital and a junior half recital.
