Degrees and Majors
At Meredith you may pursue the Bachelor of Music in Music Education, which leads to K-12 teacher licensure in music. We are proud of one hundred percent placement of our Music Education graduates, who are excellent teachers throughout North Carolina and the United States. Through methods classes, internships with the Capital City Girls Choir, the Raleigh Symphony Orchestra, and the Wake County Schools, our Music Education majors have opportunities to work with students of all ages, preparing them to teach at any grade level.
The Bachelor of Arts in Music allows a student to focus on a major area of music performance or pair the degree with a degree in another department.
Both the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Music in Music Education degrees have strong performance components. Our students have the opportunity to perform in large and small vocal and instrumental ensembles, opera workshop, keyboard ensemble, and our annual Concerto/Aria Competition and Concert, whose winners perform as soloists with the Raleigh Symphony Orchestra.
Meredith College has scholarships available for students interested in studying music. There are scholarships for freshmen and upperclassmen. Each scholarship requires an application and audition.
Admission into Meredith's music degree programs is by audition only. Auditions include a performance, music theory exam, keyboard placement exam and interview. Audition dates for high school students interested in attending Meredith in 2013-2014 are February 17 and 18, 2013, and March 16, 2013.
