The Music Department offers three degree options: a Bachelor of Arts in Music; a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz and Contemporary Music, and a Bachelor of Science in Music Technology. Because of the large degree of performance specialization inherent in music studies, the department relies heavily upon an adjunct faculty of professional musicians. The following performance groups are a vital part of the Music Department: University Singers, Concert Band, Symphony, Asheville Singers, Jazz Band, Percussion Ensemble, and various jazz and contemporary music ensembles.

Bachelor of Arts in Music

The Bachelor of Arts in Music provides an opportunity for students to engage in a wide range of musical and academic studies. Students may emphasize areas of special interest, such as performance, composition, computer music, theory and history.

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Jazz and Contemporary Music

The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree program in Jazz and Contemporary Music is intended for students wishing to pursue careers as singers, instrumentalists, composers and arrangers.

Bachelor of Science in Music Technology

The Bachelor of Science degree in Music Technology provides preparation for entry-level positions, specifically in recording and the technology-based areas of the music industry, and for graduate work.

Admission to the Major in Music

Students wishing admittance to either the B.A., B.F.A. or B.S. degree program in music must first satisfy the LANG 120  requirement.
