Admission into the Conservatory of Music is a separate process from applying to the university.
The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music at Biola's Conservatory of Music is intended for the student who wishes to study music within the liberal arts degree framework. It is appropriate for those who desire a versatile music degree with a wide range of career options and do not have specific professional career goals in the performance, composition, or teaching of music.
The emphasis of the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music is on a broad coverage of music rather than on specialization in the areas of performance, composition, or education. Consider this degree if your goal is a versatile music degree with a wide range of career options such as musicology, theology, music therapy, or music business. The B.A. Music degree is also well suited for those who desire to double major with music and another degree at Biola. Our supportive community of Christian musicians is the ideal environment for you to study and grow.
Bachelor of Arts Music students go on to a wide variety of careers that are impacting the world for Jesus Christ after graduation, including:
The opportunities I had at Biola to participate in multiple ensembles and work as a student leader in those ensembles prepared me for coordinating many projects and programs simultaneously. The chance to serve in Romania with the Biola Symphonic Winds was a life changing experience for me that opened the door to my current ministry and work in Haiti.”
