Degrees

The Music Department at Indiana University Southeast offers two degrees in Music: The B.A. in Music and the B.S. in Music. Both degrees offer students rigorous programs that combine a breadth of musical and academic study. Students engage in a full range of music courses that includes performance, music theory, music history and music technology, as well as classes appropriate for the focus of their selected concentration in the degree.

The Bachelor of Arts in Music combines and balances four kinds of study: courses in the major concentration, ensemble performance, academic music courses, and courses in general education. The breadth of study in the liberal arts combined with a strong foundation in music allows for future professional flexibility. Indiana University Southeast offers the B.A. degree in Music with concentrations in the following areas:

The Bachelor of Science in Music provides a basic foundation of academic courses in general education but focuses more heavily on courses in the major. Concentrations in this degree are designed to give students intensive study and practical experience in their chosen field. Indiana University Southeast offers the B.S. degree in Music with concentrations in the following areas:

What is a Concentration?

A "concentration" is simply a specific area of study. Since music is such a diverse discipline, students at IU Southeast have the opportunity to pursue a concentration that best develops his/her interests and skills. Each degree concentration has its own set of requirements in addition to those required by the university for the B. A. degree or the B. S. degree. Students must declare an intended concentration and track prior to auditioning to become a music major. Students also have the opportunity to pursue two concentrations within the B. A. in music degree.

What is a Track?

A "track" is a specific area of study within a concentration. For instance, a student whose concentration is Music Composition will choose either the Film & Media Composition track or the Composing for the Concert Stage track. In Music Education, students may opt either for the Vocal and General Music track or the Instrumental and General Music track. Not every concentration has multiple tracks.
