Dominican Music Students

The music program also offers courses designed to give students a broad understanding and appreciation of the intellectual, social, and spiritual values of music in the individual's cultural life through performance, the study of theory and literature, participation in performing ensembles, and listening to music.

The music program welcomes the non-music majors to participate in the program's performing ensembles, to study an instrument or voice in group or private study, to learn about music through music history and appreciation courses, and to study music humanistically through the general education program.

Offered programs

  • Music, BA
  • Music, BA with a Concentration in Performance
  • Music / Communications and Media Studies double major, BA
  • Music, Minor


Music, BA
degree is designed for students who wish to study music as part of the liberal arts program irrespective of specific career goals, or for students who plan careers in music which require a broader general education and less emphasis upon solo performance (e.g., teaching K-12, musicology, music history, music theory, music criticism, music business, or arts management).

Music, BA with a Concentration in Performance includes a strong emphasis on performance, along with supportive studies in music, and Dominican's program of general education. Students in both programs are required to audition, which may be done at the campus, or submitted by video or audiotape. Students interested in music pursuing other majors should consider a minor in music. The undergraduate curriculum is comprehensive because of the faculty's fundamental belief in the reciprocal influences of performance, scholarship, and individual creativity, all of which, in turn, prepare the student for further graduate study or to proceed to the chosen vocation.
