(46 credits)

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) with a major in music is a comprehensive program that prepares students for a variety of professional careers as well as graduate studies in music. Students hone their skills through a course of study that emphasizes performance experience. Coursework is augmented with visits by professionals in music, such as performers, composers, and educators, who share insights on their specific fields of expertise. Residencies by guest artists who offer master classes and workshops provide further opportunities for students to interact with professional artists.

Acceptance as a music major is contingent upon passing a performance audition. Theory and ear-training tests are required for proper placement within the sequence of theory and musicianship courses. This audition and set of tests must be completed before final admission to Adelphi University as a music major is granted.

Additional requirements include the performance of a public Graduation Recital.

General Education


All students must satisfy the University’s General Education requirements , in addition to the requirements for the major. Students completing the B.A. degree in the College of Arts and Sciences must also satisfy the University’s foreign language requirement. There is no University requirement for a foreign language for the B.A. degree awarded by other schools of the University or for other bachelor’s degrees such as the B.S. or B.F.A.
