Loyola University Chicago


Department of Fine and Performing Arts


A total of 42 credit hours are required to receive a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music (B.A. in Music). Additionally, all students must fulfill the University Core Curriculum requirements and take electives to meet the 120 credit hours necessary to obtain an undergraduate degree. The music curriculum is a combination of music theory, music history and literature, applied courses (one-on-one study), ensembles, electives, and a Senior Capstone Experience.

As part of the B.A. in Music, students may also choose to add a concentration in Jazz Studies or Sacred Music.

Music majors are admitted into the program via audition. Current Loyola students who wish to major or minor in Music should make an appointment with the Director of Music, Anthony Molinaro.
