University Majors

San Francisco State University
Music B.A.

The Bachelor of Arts in Music provides a humanistic approach to the study of music as a significant part of human tradition and culture. This degree program provides broad liberal arts preparation with significant study in music. The structure of the degree program offers students several avenues to pursue individual interests in music as preparation for careers in music or music-related fields. Students may choose the recommended emphases in Classical, Jazz, Electronic Music, or Creative Music Studies. Students with other music-related career interests may also design and complete an elective emphasis more appropriately focused, with the approval of the School of Music.

Preparation for the major involves competency and/or course work requirements in theory, ear training, and piano.

Performance achievement in one applied area (voice, piano, or instrumental major) is an expected component of the Bachelor of Arts degree program. Students must develop, with their faculty advisor, a school approved program that will provide for clear demonstration of musicality and musicianship appropriate to a liberal arts degree in music in their area of emphasis. Students whose major performance medium is voice are strongly recommended to take Class Voice in order to achieve performance competence.
