- Bachelor of Music (BM)
The study of musicology draws on historical investigation and various methods of criticism and analysis in the thoughtful consideration of music as both a liberal and a performance art. Coursework includes exploration and analysis of western and world music, coupled with guest lectures, demonstrations, concerts, and workshops.
Oberlin sponsors approximately 500 concerts on campus each year, including recitals and concerts by the more than 25 student ensembles. From jazz to contemporary guitar, classical to popular, computer-generated to acoustic, and from time-tested compositions to newer works, the college and conservatory present performances to satisfy any musical interest.
