BSU Department of Music

Bemidji State University is known as an excellent school for preparing musicians and music educators. The majority of music majors at BSU are involved in studies toward the Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education. Graduates are satisfactorily placed in music education positions at close to a 100% rate. Students have also selected study toward the Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, allowing for individualized tailoring of studies in areas such as Arts Management and Composition.  

Many graduates choose to enter graduate school or pursue careers in related fields. Graduates of our programs include music professors at major universities, the Director for Public Relations for the Minnesota Orchestra, and the former Director of the Minnesota Opera Company. Recent BSU music graduates have won honors at national and international competitions, including the MTNA Collegiate Artist Competition.
