Degree Options

  • Bachelor of Music in Performance & Composition

    The Bachelor of Music (BM) degree is intended for students planning professional careers as performers or composers. Students entering this major are required to have a high level of competence in their chosen performance area. As with all EWU Music Degrees, students are required to pass an entrance audition to be accepted as a music major and pass upper level juries to complete their degrees.

  • Bachelor of Music: Jazz Performance

    The Jazz Performance degree is designed to give music majors access to jazz classes and ensembles and increase their skills for the purpose of performing and teaching jazz. The degree includes a recital experience to enhance students’ abilities to apply their knowledge in a performance setting. Students will also perform for a jury (pass/fail) on materials provided through the curriculum.

    The Bachelor of Arts in Music (BA) is recommended for students interested in general studies in music or planning to pursue graduate studies in music history and literature or composition.
