Bachelor of Arts in Music: Composition Emphasis

Request Info Apply Now

The Emphasis in Composition helps students to develop their gifts in the creative process, particularly as it applies to composition, improvisation, and songwriting, with secondary emphasis on performance skills. Students are prepared to create excellent new repertory in various styles and venues, to apply their compositional talents in communal and collaborative music making, and to study composition and/or music theory at the graduate level.

Belhaven's distinctive Worldview Curriculum undergirds this program with the understanding that we are made in the image of The Creator God and therefore have creative attributes that must be expressed. Many Christian college music programs lack composition programs, but Belhaven has filled this role through helping students achieve their calling as creative artists.

Belhaven University graduates with an Emphasis in Composition will be prepared to continue their studies at the graduate and doctoral levels, and should be able to pursue their craft vocationally either as composers in residence at Christian colleges, composers serving the Church, or composers serving the global marketplace.

Music scholarships are available.
