Program Overview

Our music program is recognized as one of the best and most comprehensive in the nation among liberal arts colleges. We offer two different degrees in music: 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, classical or contemporary, on any instrument, it’s all here at Furman.
