The Bachelor of Arts with a major in music is offered for students desiring a non-professional concentration within a liberal arts degree program.
About the Major
While the B.A. in music provides sufficient preparation for students to enter graduate music degree programs, many intend to pursue a career in another field. It is possible to earn a double major in other academic disciplines, such as chemistry, economics, English, biology, computer science, physics, psychology, and more.
Students interested in pursuing a career in the music business can combine the B.A. Music major with a minor in Management. This program of study provides a solid understanding of the art of music as well as necessary business knowledge to promote a successful career. Those following this program of study can apply for an internship in New York City through the New York Arts Program.
Completing two academic majors can expand your skills and knowledge, make you more marketable, and enrich your life. Double majoring can be nearly impossible for music majors at many schools, but the B.A. in music at OWU is a common double major degree.
