Can singing "This Little Light of Mine" really help somebody relearn to speak, after being shot in the head through Broca's area? How can music-based interventions improve Alzheimer's patients' functioning and quality of life? Could music be a viable alternative to drugs or other types of therapy in treating mood disorders?

Can you imagine how music might offer a vision of beauty in a broken world, help us hear the voices of those different from ourselves, transform us, and be seen as a gift of God? Music studies balance rigorous discipline alongside creative imagination and the urge for artistic excellence and passion alongside compassion and sensitivity to human need. Concentrations include performance, music education, musicology, music ministry, and comprehensive studies.

The Bachelor of Music is a professional program offering the following concentrations: music education, music ministry, musicology, performance, and comprehensive. Students are able to complete one or more concentrations for their degrees. Graduates from these concentrations frequently pursue graduate studies before embarking on a professional career in music. While these concentrations are identified as a career track, these degrees are also valuable as general arts degrees. B.Mus. graduates often are acknowledged as well-disciplined, well-educated, and imaginative people, with the competence to serve society well in a wide variety of areas.... [-]

Bachelor of Arts in Humanities THE VALUE OF A HUMANITIES DEGREE

Bachelor of Arts - Art History

Enhanced by its setting within an art school, the Historical and Critical Studies division offers a Bachelor of Arts Major in Art History program within a unique interdisciplinary environment. The Art History program enables you to complete a major in art history while also taking studio courses. Though it emphasizes western art, craft, design, and architecture from the 19th century onward, the program also provides opportunities to study non-western art and to engage in critical discourse surrounding the social production and reception of art. You’ll enter the Major in Art History after completing the Foundation Program—a foundation in the studio, visual culture, and writing. Alternatively, you may enter the major after completing a year of liberal studies course-work. Either way, your background will be diverse and will set the tone for interdisciplinary exploration. NSCAD provides students with wide-ranging course options and opportunities to engage in critical discourse and fosters a cross-disciplinary flow of ideas and interaction. Courses in history, critical studies, English literature, film studies, and art education are all part of what makes this degree so strong. You will gain knowledge and expertise through courses ranging from Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance/Baroque, and Canadian modern art theory and criticism. Graduates of NSCAD’s Major in Art History program become writers, gallery and museum administrators, and culture workers. Many go on to pursue graduate studies and obtain successful careers as professors of art and film history, curators, archivists, appraisers, and critics.... [-]
