Program of Study
The aim of this department is to help students develop performance skills, theoretical knowledge, musicianship, and critical judgment in music for service in the church, school, and community. There are no prerequisites for the general music major program, however students must maintain a grade of C or better in all music courses.
In addition to meeting the Providence mission and purposes, this major will enable each graduate to: demonstrate skills for professional musical leadership in church, school, or community; develop critical thinking, problem solving and practical skills in music theory and music history; develop effective performance skills in ensembles and in solo work; prepare for further study in music.
Students in the General Music program will receive training in three core areas of music study - Music Theory, Music History and Music Performance. Developing skills in these areas will enable the students to pursue additional under graduate as well as graduate studies in any music discipline.
All students in degree programs are required to take a minimum of courses in a variety of general arts and sciences so as to enable them to acquire an adequate foundation and context for their chosen area of studies, and to develop a critical appreciation of scholarship in general.
Biblical and Theological Studies establish anchor points for effective Christian thinking, living, and serving in the church and in society. The Humanities, Social Sciences, and Sciences deepen the understanding and heighten the appreciation of human nature, thoughts, cultures, and societies. Music and Theatre foster the musical and dramatic expression of the human spirit, condition, and experience.
There are a variety of ways for students to gain practical experience performing and perfecting their musical craft. Click here to learn about the many opportunities for you to perform.
