Music, Concentration

Beginning with the Western sacred music tradition, the concentration in music at the University of Dallas encourages interest and proficiency in music by organizing courses into a coherent set of experiences. It requires at least nine academic credits in music history, theory and electives, as well as at least six credits from applied music, both ensemble and private lessons.
