“You are really doing a fine job of preparing the students for coming to teach in a classroom. I was speaking with [Seton Hill music education students] today and realized it was the first time all of these students taught a lesson to this age group! The way they were teaching, I thought they had previous experience, maybe at another school district. I really enjoyed having them here today. They are welcome back anytime!”

- Meghan Whytsell, a local music and chorus teacher, in an email to Seton Hill.


Is Music Your Life?

It has been part of Seton Hill’s since we awarded our first two degrees — both Bachelors of Music — in 1919. As a fully-accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music, we believe in educating students in a challenging yet supportive environment. Here, you will find your voice.

Music Program Degrees

Bachelor of Music (B.M.) Degrees
The Music Program at Seton Hill University offers four concentrations within the Bachelor of Music (B.M.) degree:

Each of these programs includes a strong emphasis on skill development in music foundations and performance. Students receive an hour weekly lesson on their major instrument or voice and are given ample opportunities to perform. 

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Music Degrees
We also offer the Bachelor of Arts in Music degree for those students who wish to explore other options for developing a career in music. This degree couples a strong foundation in music and performance with the ability to add additional study in areas such as business. (And with Seton Hill's FastForward to an MBA Program, you can earn both your undergraduate degree and your MBA in only five years!)
