The B.A. program prepares students for works in Music history, Musicology, research and advanced composition. The B.F.A. program has four areas of specialization: Applied Music for performers; Music Education for prospective teachers in the public schools; Sacred Music for organists or choir directors planning a career as church musicians; and Composition for creatively gifted musicians. Musical understanding, technical competence, and humanistic orientation to the art of music were the principal aims of the Department program during 1960's.
