Our music program is recognized as one of the best and most comprehensive in the nation among liberal arts colleges. We offer both the flexible bachelor of arts in music and the bachelor of music, a professional degree with majors in performance, education, church music, theory, and composition. Both programs feature one-on-one instruction and studies in a broad range of musical genres. So whether you're interested in chamber or symphonic, jazz or opera, classic or contemporary, on any instrument, it's all here at Furman.
