Fine and Performing Arts - Music Program
The Music program at Morgan State University offers the following degrees: Bachelor of Arts in Music, and Masters of Arts in Music. Undergraduates may also elect to complete a Minor in Music. Our music program is fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Music.
All of our students benefit from taking applied music lessons from a nationally renowned faculty. With a low student-to-faculty ratio, our Music program is able to provide individual attention to each student within a close knit community. Graduates of our Music program find careers in a multitude of professions including: teaching, performing, composing, marketing, arts management, publishing, church music directing, and sound recording.
The goals of our Music program are as follows:
(1) To provide a comprehensive training in music, consisting of common courses obligatory to all degree candidates, with supplemental offerings which define each student’s focus area;
(2) To stimulate self-reliance and encourage independent intellectual and artistic growth;
(3) To provide all students the cultural and humanistic perspectives and skills common to the music profession;
(4) To give foundational support to those students who would like to become certified to teach music in the public schools;
(5) To provide advanced training to students who are interested in performing; and
(6) To contribute to the general cultural and educational aspirations of the campus and the community.
