All Loras College students, regardless of major, have the opportunity to grow as musicians through participation in choral and instrumental ensembles, private lessons, general education offerings, and music liturgies. We offer two options within the Music department: the Bachelor of Arts in Music and the Bachelor of Arts in Education, focused on music. In addition, we offer a minor in music and a minor in liturgical music.
Graduates of the Loras College music program have gone on to successful careers in music education, arts administration and other fields.
