Bachelor of Science in Music

The Molloy College Bachelor of Science in Music is a liberal arts degree in music that provides students with the opportunity to develop their artistic voice through a flexible curriculum. Students have up to 26 elective credits allowing them to further their skills in music technology, music composition, performance, or in other areas outside of music. Students in the Bachelor of Science in Music often pursue a minor in a related discipline or even a second major.

We offer elective courses in Music Technology that allow students to develop their own compositions, and explore music creation using digital media.

We provide our Students with development opportunities and internships with some of our partner music organizations including Opera on Tap, MISE-EN New Music, The Madison Theater, and Classical Saxophone Project. In consultation with their advisor, students carve their own academic path that fulfills their academic and artistic needs. Molloy College is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM).
