Courses of Study

Please follow the links below to a brief description and detailed curriculum information for each of the degree programs.

All of the degrees offered by the music department are approved by the Chancellor’s Office of the California State University (CSU). In addition, the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM) has accredited the Music Industry StudiesBA and the General StudiesBA degrees. The music department’s three BM degrees—Performance, Composition, and Pedagogy/Music Education—are new and are therefore awaiting approval from NASM.
