Undergraduate Music Studies

Undergraduate music degrees at Georgia Southern University prepare students to pursue professional work as teachers, performers, and composers or to enter graduate-level programs in music. All degrees build on fundamental competencies in music theory and analysis, sight-singing, keyboard facility, technological tools, music history and literature.

Specific Bachelor of Music degrees provide students with specialized training leading to advanced competency in the areas of composition, music education, or performance. Throughout the program, students broaden their experience and integrate their skills and knowledge by participating as performers and listeners in the Music Department’s rich and varied concert life and through interaction with accomplished teacher/mentors.

Acceptance into any undergraduate degree program requires the completion of an Entrance Audition. Audition requirements vary depending upon degree and primary instrument/voice.
