Admission into the Conservatory of Music is a separate process from applying to the university.
The Bachelor of Science Degree in Music in Worship at Biola's Conservatory of Music emphasizes musicianship, spiritual formation, and Biblical training. You will be prepared for leading music in worship for a variety of settings such as church services, retreats, and conferences.
You'll take classes like spiritual formation and worship, designing and leading worship, pop theory, digital recording and sound production. Every week you'll take private lessons with top studio and church musicians, play in bands, and participate in seminars featuring nationally-known worship leaders.
Biola graduates from the Music in Worship program have gone on to pursue professional careers such as:
Biola provided me with the strong musical and biblical foundation I needed to pursue my career as a Christian artist and worship leader. The passion and talent that exists among the students is unmatched and helps inspire a close-knit community of creatives excited about impacting the world for God's glory. In addition to the education and experiences I received, the connections I made with other students and faculty at Biola have helped me advance in my ministry career since graduation.”
My time at Biola prepared me for the adventures of ministry. My classes and professors equipped me to serve the church in several capacities. I’ll always be thankful for the Biola community and the environment it provided to pursue my calling as an artist and worship leader.”
Biola is a community like none other. During my time there I was surrounded by friends, staff and faculty that challenged me to take risks and trust the Lord with every aspect of my life. I am extremely grateful to have had a college experience that not only shaped my musicianship, but instilled a passion for Jesus and living fearlessly for Him. ”
One of biggest thing music classes taught me was to be ﬂexible. When playing for an artist day in and day out, anything can change at the last minute — sometimes seconds before going on stage, and you’re expected to adjust and perform as if you had been doing it for weeks.”
