• The primary focus of the Department of Musicianship Studies is providing curricular and co-curricular experiences for music majors pursuing emphases in Music and Worship, Music Business, and the Music in the Liberal Arts. Because it recognizes that all musical gifts come from God, the Department strives to inspire its students to practice responsible stewardship of those gifts, while fostering an appropriate balance between intellectual pursuits and practical applications.

    To achieve those goals, the Department offers specialized courses designed to prepare its majors to function in a diverse musical world. It serves the School of Music by providing courses in three core areas: music theory, functional piano, as well as music history and literature. The department also delivers a course on music and culture for the university’s general education core.
