The mission of the music major is to develop in students the skills of discrimination and sensitivity in listening, careful analysis in studying music, technical competence in performance, and expressiveness in interpretation while promoting abiding Christian values. The department offers a curriculum with the goal to analyze the processes and apply the knowledge and skills necessary to create and perform music.

Two music major programs are offered: the music education major (K-12) with choral or instrumental emphasis, for students who want to become certified to teach music at the elementary or secondary level; and the music major, for students who wish to pursue music careers or graduate study outside the realm of education. Students completing the music major may add a concentration in music performance, theory and composition, or church music.

Music majors must earn a 2.0 (C) or better in all music courses to successfully complete the program. Additional requirements for all music majors appear in the Music Department.
