Bachelor of Arts
The Bachelor of Arts offers you a curriculum entirely focused on undergraduate students. We offer small classrooms, personal relationships with professors, and a world-class liberal arts education. Develop your writing, perform research, and gain 21st-century skills all rooted in a proud intellectual tradition.
The B.A. lets you choose from 36 majors to build an academic experience that is uniquely yours and that will prepare you to thrive and succeed.
Bachelor of Music
The B.Mus. degree allows you to focus primarily on music in a professional degree program that is founded upon principles of a liberal arts education.
You can major in performance, music education, theory, or composition. You can also pursue a jazz emphasis in performance or composition. About two thirds of your classes will be in music, including lessons, classes such as music theory and history, and ensembles, while non-music classes will make up the remaining third of your studies. As a result, you will earn a well-rounded education along with the highest quality musical instruction.

Immerse yourself in music and at least one other field of study at a very high level. Lawrence offers an innovative combined B.A./B.Mus. program that allows you to earn both degrees in five years.
Nearly half of Conservatory students pursue the dual degree. You’ll take half your classes in the conservatory and half your classes in the college, combining 21st-century musicianship with a challenging and illuminating liberal arts program.
