Arts Village Learning Community
Open to students of any major, the Arts Village is a residential learning community that involves exploring all aspects of the arts and sharing views with one another and faculty of various disciplines.
BGSU has more than 20 music-related student organizations, including the Steel Drum Association, wind and string groups, and the Student Jazz Association. Certain vocal ensembles, such as A Cappella Choir, Collegiate Chorale, and University Men’s and Women’s choruses, also have student organizations associated with them.
Upon completion of the baccalaureate degree, students in music are expected to:
- Demonstrate mastery over music theory—the construction of chords, harmony and scale systems from all periods
- Aurally identify any interval or chord, scale structure and style of music; capably sight-sing any music and play piano
- Competently perform on an instrument of choice (including voice) and effectively communicate on the literature for that instrument and for appropriate ensembles
- Critically evaluate the history and development of music over the last 1,000 years, recognize sociopolitical and artistic forces on music and articulate the major figures and style characteristics of historic periods
- Comprehend the basics of non-Western music and/or jazz and apply critical thinking towards music and its contextualization
