Bachelor of Science in Music

http://music.uoregon.edu

Students who want a conservatory-style education in music should work toward the bachelor of music (BMus) degree or a music major with the music history and literature concentration, music theory concentration or music technology concentration. The bachelor of arts (BA) and bachelor of science (BS) degrees with the general music concentration or popular music studies concentration are primarily for students who want a broad liberal arts education while majoring in music.

Bachelor of science degrees require competence in mathematics or computer science (see the Bachelor's Degree Requirements section of this catalog).
