Bachelor of Arts in Music: Worship Arts Emphasis

The emphasis in Worship Arts is designed to prepare liberal arts students to serve local congregations that emphasize a more “contemporary” style of worship.  This broad based curriculum includes an examination of all the other arts and how they could be integrated into worship.  Courses also provide for all other aspects of preparation for those preparing to serve as worship arts leaders.
