Music enriches the soul and enlightens the spirit. At Catholic University, your studies will combine a first-class musical training with classes in subjects like philosophy and literature, allowing you to consider exciting new ideas as you pursue your passion for music.
At Catholic University, you can pursue a Bachelor of Music degree in orchestral instruments (e.g., strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, guitar) or a Bachelor of Music degree in organ. In both of these majors, you will take a core of classes in the liberal arts and humanities along with foundational music courses in areas like music history and conducting. You will also receive advanced private instruction in your instrument of choice.
In your time at Catholic University, you will learn how to be a scholar and a thinker as well as a musician. When you graduate, you will have gained much more than a mastery of the organ or the violin - you will also possess the exceptional writing and critical thinking skills that are the hallmark of a liberal arts education.
