Dept Marketing Statement The UCSC music curriculum is distinctive in developing musicians who integrate scholarship with performance. Although this rigorous program primarily addresses Western art music, it also incorporates the study of world music cultures in both their art and vernacular traditions. A major in music establishes a substantial foundation for further academic or performance studies. Two undergraduate majors are offered: the Bachelor of Music (B.M.), which especially develops the student's attainment in performance, and the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), which cultivates greater breadth in the student's academic achievement. Three minors in music are also offered: one in electronic music, one in music, and one in jazz. The electronic music and jazz minors are open to music majors, as well as to students pursuing other majors.
