The Bachelor of Arts degree in Music at UMass Dartmouth develops musicians and prepares them for graduate school and careers that will allow them to be successful in our rapidly changing multicultural world. All students take survey and performance classes in the world's music cultures, from Asia and Oceania, through the Middle East/West Asia, Africa, and Europe, to the Americas. Our goal is to develop an understanding of the social, political, and cultural implications of music making in global communities through performance, research, discussion, listening, viewing, and writing. Upon graduation our students are expected to demonstrate performance ability, musical analysis, critical and creative thinking, and original ideas in both the oral and written form. Our program is grounded in the importance of cultural sensitivity and giving our students the ability to function in a variety of social, geographical, and political contexts.
