Bachelor of Arts in Music Education


Become a well-rounded music graduate with an emphasis in music education through Pacific University's Bachelor of Arts in Music Education Degree.

Pacific University’s BA with emphasis in music education degree is designed for students who are interested in earning an undergraduate music education degree within a liberal arts context that does not necessarily lead them to a teaching license or full-time teaching professional engagements. The program design also allows students to pursue double degrees in other disciplines.

The BA in Music Education program prepares students to pursue teaching licensure through master degree programs—upon completion of the degree, students can continue in the College of Education’s Master of Arts in Teaching program or at other universities in Oregon that offer MAT programs.

Pacific University’s Department of Music faculty is among the most active professionals at state, regional, national, and international levels. This provides students with on-going opportunities to attend, present, and perform at state, regional, and national conferences.
