Music: Bachelor of Music in Performance: Instrumental (Non-Keyboard)

The Bachelor of Music in Performance degree is intended for highly qualified students who are capable of pursuing advanced studies beyond a baccalaureate degree and/or a professional career in music. Enrollment is contingent upon a special performance jury that occurs no earlier than the end of the first semester of study. This special performance jury must also be passed for a student transferring into the Bachelor of Music degree program from another degree program or from another institution. The Bachelor of Music in Performance degree is comprehensive, meaning that a minor is not required.
