Degree Requirements

flute professor and student in a lesson

The Bachelor of Music requires a minimum of 120 s.h. of credit. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the major and in all UI courses for the major. They also must complete the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences GE CLAS Core.

The program offers concentrations in composition, music therapy, and performance. Students seeking licensure/certification in music education or music therapy should enroll in the B.M. program.

Many students earn more than 120 s.h. in fulfilling the requirements for their majors—for instance, those who choose the music therapy concentration or seek teacher certification. The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences maximum hours rule does not apply to the Bachelor of Music, so B.M. students may count more than 56 s.h. of course work in music toward the degree.
