Students pursuing advanced academic study in Church Music are preparing to be ministers of music, choirmasters, organists, children's choir leaders or a combination of these roles. Students in this program may focus on performance, research, or conducting. Opportunities to include contemporary music components in the degree are available to interested individuals.

Coursework includes study in worship, church music education, hymnology and choral literature. Supervised work in a church setting is a practical component of this curriculum. Supporting courses in music include research, theory, history, and applied studies.

Church Music majors are required to successfully complete comprehensive written and oral examinations. The culminating project is either the lecture recital track or the full recital track.
