Bachelor of Music in Sacred Music
The undergraduate Sacred Music program is designed for students who are preparing for professional careers in church music. The curriculum provides courses in theological, liturgical, sociological, and practical dimensions of music ministry and requires at least one year of supervised field education in an affiliate church.
Westminster Choir College alumnus and organist James Roman shares insights into the role that Westminster Choir College has played in his successful career as a church musician and performer.
"My experience as a sacred music major at Westminster Choir College prepared me for ministry in a 21st century reality. To be able to engage in dialogue about church music and culture, worship with colleagues and create sacred space for these things within our community is an experience that I will never forget. I left this program equipped with the practical, musical and spiritual tools needed for our ever-changing and ever- growing world."
