Music Major

Bachelor of Arts in Music

The Music Department at Emory offers three tracks for fulfilling a major in music: Composition, Performance, and History, Culture, and Theory. Students must select a track by the end of the sophomore year and fulfill all course requirements in the track in order to earn a major in music.

In addition to the music major requirements, students may also complete the Arts Management Concentration.

Since significant portions of the music curriculum are based on mastery of sequential study, the department recommends an early declaration of the major. This allows students maximum benefit from private lesson study since the department provides a half-subsidy for private lessons for declared music majors.
