This emphasis is intended for students with a strong interest in solo performance, composition, musicology, ethnomusicology, or ensemble leadership but not pursuing a professional program such as church music or music education. With careful selection of courses, the Liberal Arts/Performance emphasis can prepare you for specialized graduate studies in such sub-disciplines as music history/musicology, music theory, composition, ethnomusicology, vocal or instrumental performance.
