Careers in Musics

With the expansion of the arts industry, both nationally and internationally, the opportunities for employment for music graduates are wide and highly varied. These include the following: teaching (elementary and secondary school/university/studio); performing (professional, community and church-sponsored venues) composing, conducting, and consulting in both commercial and non-commercial situations; librarianship, research, and publishing; recording engineering and editing; music sales and retailing; arts management; instrument repair and maintenance.

The Bachelor of Arts in Music is a foundational degree affording the broadest scope for career aspirations. There is room for developing minor concentrations in other fields, such as computer science or business; while, at the same time, there is sufficient focus and intensity to prepare the student for graduate study or work in the music industry.

The Bachelor of Music Education is a special, dual concentration degree combining the music core of the B.A. with courses leading to comprehensive certification for teaching music in the Georgia public school system. This intensive program prepares the student for immediate success in the field of music education.

The department also jointly administers the Bachelor of Music Therapy, in cooperation with the College of Health Sciences. See the Music Therapy website at Music Therapy for details on this degree program.
