Music Major

Bachelor of Arts in Music

At Colorado Christian University, you can combine your passion for music with your education by earning a Bachelor of Arts in Music. This music degree is perhaps the most versatile of all music degrees, preparing you for a broad range of musical and non-musical careers. The additional elective hours easily allow a student with varied interests to add a minor in another field of study or more in-depth studies in specific areas of music. You can tailor the program to your unique interests by adding an emphasis in composition, music production and engineering, or performance.

Music in the Christian university

The focus of CCU's School of Music is to teach you how to impact your culture for Christ, as well as how to honor Him and to share His love on campus and around the world, using excellence in music to do so. Integrated offerings combine classical, jazz, contemporary, and world music with a progressive and distinctly Christian worldview to develop students who are leaders – both in the world and in the Church. As a music major, you'll receive personal attention by an exceptional, creative, and caring faculty who are themselves active performers and clinicians who desire to not only teach but to also mentor students. Opportunities include national tours for major ensembles, and an on-campus recording studio.
