Bachelor of Arts

Students who additionally seek to major in other areas (double major) or to take a large number of courses in a pre-professional program (pre-law, pre-medical, etc.) are encouraged to enroll in the Bachelor of Arts in Music. The Bachelor of Arts in Music cannot be used as a major in combination with the Bachelor of Music.
