The School of music offers several undergraduate degree programs in areas of music performance, jazz studies, elective studies or music industry studies. We also offer a Master's in Music Performance (Instrumental or Vocal).
Undergraduate Instrumental Degree Programs
Bachelor of Music in Performance Degrees
For enhancing skills and bringing them to a professional level, there’s no better way than private study. All of our music performance students study with Loyola’s artist faculty who maintain professional careers and have extensive backgrounds. Concentration may be elected in organ, guitar, piano, orchestral instrument, jazz studies, music industry studies, or elective studies.
Bachelor of Arts in Music
If you love music but also love graphic design or political science, or want to prepare for medical school, our bachelor of arts in music may be perfect for you. In addition to intensive study in music theory, music history, and solo and ensemble performance, students in this program complete a minor, or even a second major, in another field. This can prepare you for a career in either music or that other field, or in an area that combines the two.
The flexibility of our curriculum lends itself well to pre-professional studies, and graduates have gone on to medical and law school as well as to careers in a wide variety of fields. It’s also a particularly good starting point for graduate study in music history, music theory, ethnomusicology, and other areas. It’s up to you to create a path that fits your own particular interests and needs.
