B.A. in Music

The music major at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences offers an extremely low student-faculty ratio with professors who have a wide variety of backgrounds and academic/research expertise.

The music major includes a four-semester sequence of music theory supplemented by instruction in piano, sight-reading, and ear training. Musicological studies in the standard repertoire are supplemented with courses specific to the instrument or voice. Conducting reinforces the integration of the music core with performance and develops leadership abilities. Students will improve their performance skills in ensembles that perform regularly on campus and throughout South Florida.

The music major is offered during the day and evening on NSU's main campus.

Consider Selecting a Minor

Pursuing a minor can deepen your knowledge in a discipline related to your major or enable you to explore a field outside your major area of study and diversify your skills. Speak with a faculty member in your program to determine which minor(s) can support your academic, professional, and personal goals.
