  1. Bachelor of Music

    Bachelor of Music is an academic degree awarded by a college, university, or conservatory upon completion of program of study in music. In the United States, it is a professional degree, and the majority of work consists of prescribed music courses and study in applied music, usually requiring proficiency in performing an instrument. Such a program lasts three to four and a half years. The degree of Bachelor of Music may be awarded for music performance, music education, composition, music theory, musicology / music history, music technology, music therapy, music ministry, music business, music entertainment, music production or jazz studies. Recently, some universities have begun offering degrees in Music Composition with Technology, which encompasses traditional theory and musicology coursework, but also adds the element of engineering in a studio, and becoming proficient at full-scale studio production. In the United Kingdom, the degree of Bachelor of Music — often referred to in speech as a B.Mus. — is generally a first degree lasting three years and consisting of a wide range of areas of study, but at the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge it is a one-year postgraduate degree which can only be read if a student is a graduate in music with honours at those universities; the undergraduate course is in the Faculty of Arts and leads to the degree of Bachelor of Arts.
