The Bachelor of Music degree is offered with a major in church music, composition, music education, music theory, and performance. Students may also pursue a Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in music. All students must perform an audition and complete a music theory placement examination prior to consideration for admission to curricula leading to either the Bachelor of Music or the Bachelor of Arts degree. Formal major declaration occurs in the spring semester of the sophomore year.
Furman University is a member of the National Association of Schools of Music. Requirements for entrance to the major, for curricular standards of all degree programs, and for graduation are in accordance with the published regulations of that body. All students with a desire to initiate performance study, whether as a major or elective, are required to audition.
