About the Specialization
The BFA curriculum features a network of courses that offer core theory and skills studies, songwriting, arranging, rock and pop history, recording, producing and individual lessons. Students are highly encouraged to add classes in non-Western music, experimental composition and music technology in order to broaden the creative and technical reach of their individual musical voices.
From the beginning and throughout their residency, students build and develop a cumulative portfolio of creative work in close collaboration with their mentor. This portfolio is periodically reviewed. In order to obtain the degree, this portfolio must be evaluated and approved by faculty in the student’s final year.
Detailed curriculum and academic requirements can be found in the online course catalog.
