The Bachelor of Music is ideal for the student who wishes to pursue music as a career. The B.M. is the most common professional degree in music and the most music-intensive of all options, with approximately two-thirds of all coursework in music and one-third in liberal arts courses. With careful planning, students in the B.M. program may also complete a second major in a liberal arts discipline or add an emphasis in business.
