Bachelor of Music (BM) 

This is a professional degree with concentration options in Performance, Jazz Studies, Music Therapy, Music Education and Music Composition. Approximately two-thirds of the required coursework is in music, in such areas as performance, ensemble participation, music theory and music history. The remainder of the curriculum is fulfilled with general education courses.

At Western Michigan University, we offer two emphases in music education: instrumental and choral/general. The undergraduate page will provide the curriculum guide, including class lists for both of these emphases.
