Music, B.A

Sample Degree Map

The Music, B.A degree challenges students to look beyond the traditional music degree programs. This not only provides you with options and flexibility, it provides the opportunity to create something that is uniquely YOU. Fredonia’s new Bachelor of Arts in Music offers exactly that opportunity with five tracks to choose from: general, jazz, entrepreneurship, technology, and history & literature. Get the foundational training you need with the flexibility you want to create your own path. Whatever your dream, Fredonia will help you get there.

The State University of New York at Fredonia is committed to doing our part to provide each student a clear path to graduation. This four-year degree plan is a sample map for fulfilling requirements in the major, the Fredonia Foundations (FF), and other supporting courses. The pathway that you take to your degree may differ somewhat from this illustration, depending on where you start and the detours and side trips you may take along the way. If you are committed to completing your degree in four years, we encourage you to consider signing up for the Fredonia in 4 program.
