Bachelor of Arts (BA)
The Bachelor of Arts degree in Music is a performance major designed for students interested in studying music within a biblical context. Students choose from one of three areas in which to specialize: voice, instrumental or keyboard. In addition to perfecting their technique, expression and performance skills, students receive comprehensive musical training, acquire an aesthetic sensitivity that embraces diverse musical styles and develop a striving toward musical excellence.
In Minnesota, our Music major program is well-renowned. Our students gain top-notch professional experience through student teaching, church music practice, student ministries and recitals. The Music Department’s extensive performance opportunities range from recitals and musicals, to positions in the Crown College Choir, Kammerchor (both of which perform abroad biannually), Women’s Choir, Crown Brass, String Ensemble, Percussion Ensemble, Flute Ensemble and ENCORE.
The flexible B.A. in Music gives students dedicated to a life of making and performing music to God’s glory a variety of post-graduation options. They may pursue a master’s degree or performance career. Some work in a music-related business or industry. Others teach privately in a studio or academy. Our graduates work as church worship leaders, sing professionally with such esteemed Twin Cities groups such as the Minnesota Opera and VocalEssence, and have graduated with a master’s in music from Cambridge University in England.
