The Butler School of Music seeks to prepare students for the changing realities of the modern world and for satisfying lives as informed members of society. Students will study diverse musical traditions, participate in community outreach, and explore new technologies that can be used creatively to further the art of music.
Music majors earn either a Bachelor of Music or Bachelor of Arts degree. Bachelor of Music degrees are designed for pre-professional students or those planning to pursue graduate study in Music.
The Bachelor of Arts in Music is structured much like a liberal arts degree. The elective hours included in this degree make it appropriate for students who have an interest outside of the department, such as a simultaneous major in another college or an academic or pre-professional program such as pre-med. Students pursuing majors outside of the Butler School of Music may be interested in completing a music minor.
