Bachelor of Arts, Music
The B.A. program is perfect for students wanting a foundation to pursue a career or further study in arts administration, music history, ethnomusicology music criticism and more. This degree has a liberal arts emphasis and flexible curriculum.
Many students combine this degree program with a second area of study that complement their goals and interests such as business, writing, pre-law, non-profit management and more.
Students will take classes in music theory, piano, music technology, music history and more. While B.A. Music students will take performance classes, take private studio lessons and perform in ensembles, this program does not focus on the performance of music.
What sets UCF Music apart from other colleges and universities is that there is a thriving entertainment industry in Orlando that provides many opportunities for current students and graduates. There are many local arts groups as well as opportunities within the tourism industry such as theme parks, conventions and special events to gain experience.
