The Vocal Arts
Area is one of the most visible and vibrant parts of an exceptional music program at Georgia Southern University. Students from all academic majors participate in choirs
, and private vocal study. Those wishing to major in music may pursue the Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education, Performance, or Composition, or the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music. Graduate students may earn the Master of Music Degree in Music Education, Performance, or Composition. The Minor in Music is available in Applied, Music History and Literature, and Music Technology.
Georgia Southern graduates have a near 100% placement rate in music education, and many have successful careers in performance and arts-related professions. Our alumni have continued their educations in graduate programs at the Eastman School of Music, Boston University , Peabody Conservatory, Westminster Choir College , and the Royal College of Music in London.
Academic studies and performances are augmented by numerous off-campus appearances by students and faculty, and Georgia Southern Chorale's annual concert tours. In May 2005, the Chorale completed a two-week tour of Italy that culminated in performances at Saint Peter's Basilica in Vatican City and the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence. International tours take place every three years and are coupled with an academic residency which affords students an opportunity for additional study at the Bavarian Music Academy. GSC's next trip abroad will be in May, 2008.
