The Belhaven University Music Department, accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), seeks to produce leaders in the musical arts who will have influence in homes, churches, private studios, educational institutions, and on the concert stage. While developing the God-bestowed talents of our students, we seek to provide an understanding of the musical arts from a Christian worldview.
The Bachelor of Arts in Music without emphasis is the gateway to all other degree programs including a common core of music courses. The Bachelor of Arts in Music Education is a professional degree program for future music educators. It has two emphases: one in instrumental and one in vocal/choral.
The Bachelor of Music, another professional degree program, offers five degree paths including The Bachelor of Music in Composition, The Bachelor of Music in Performance in organ or piano, in strings or in voice. The Bachelor of Music in Performance may also be earned with an emphasis in Collaborative Piano.
These various degree programs offer students a wide variety in courses of study and outcomes at the conclusion of undergraduate study including preparation for careers in composition, conducting, music industry, music ministries, music performance, music therapy, and teaching.
