The Bachelor of Music in Professional Studies will allow students to work closely with an advisor to develop individual goals and design a personalized program of study. While most music degree programs are highly prescriptive, the MPRO will allow students to tailor the curriculum to match their diverse personal and professional goals, as well as adjust to the rapidly changing music industry. 

Students will select approved electives with the assistance of a guidance committee consisting of their assigned Faculty Advisor(s), Senior Academic Advisor, and the Associate Dean for Undergraduate Studies.
