Curricula for Bachelor's Degrees

The Jacobs School of Music offers three undergraduate bachelor’s degree programs: the Bachelor of Music degrees in performance, composition, early music, and jazz studies; the Bachelor of Science degrees in audio engineering and sound production, ballet, and music and an outside field; and the Bachelor of Music Education degrees in choral teaching, general music teaching, instrumental teaching—band, and instrumental teaching—strings. Detailed definitions for these music education tracks appear under listings for the individual curricula.

A minimum of 120 credit hours, excluding I400 and major ensemble, is required for all music undergraduate degrees. Total credit hours for some degrees may be higher because of specific requirements.
