Music - Major

Curriculum Guides
BA Music
BA Music with Teaching Certification

Recognizing that music has been an integral part of life since the dawn of human history, the Schreiner University Music Department offers an opportunity for students to enrich their association with music by increasing their understanding of the art through academic courses and through performance instruction and venues.  Schreiner offers courses leading to a major in music within the Bachelor of Arts degree program. Expertise in music is a constant source of enrichment throughout life. The minor in music program should also equip a student to be involved in a church's music ministry program, and perhaps to teach private lessons.

A major in music includes:
MUSC 1304, 1305, (1102 or 1103 - 6 hours)
MUSC 1110, 1111, 2105

Plus 24 advanced hours:
MUSC 3104, 3109 - (6 hours)
MUSC 3301, 3302, 3305, 4399

An additional 6 advanced hours of music.

In addition, those whose applied music area is not piano, must demonstrate proficiency in piano performance at least on the early intermediate level, or take Piano Fundamentals and/or Applied Music: Piano. Those whose applied music area is voice must take German or French 1401. Students seeking teacher certification in Music should consult the Teacher Education section of this catalog for specific course selection.
