Music Major, B.F.A.

 Additional information on the Department of Music

The Department of Music offers both a BA and a BFA track for music majors. Under the new proposal, all students seeking music degrees will begin under the BA music track. Students may then apply to the BFA track "by audition." No audition is required for admission into the BA program. Ordinarily, BFA auditions will take place during the third semester of matriculation at Tulane.

The BFA in Music is a rigorous program of study with separate concentrations in Performance, Composition, Jazz, and Musical Theatre. All students share a core curriculum in musicology, performance, and composition, with additional required courses in the appropriate areas of concentration.
