Music in World Cultures Major (B.M.)
Liberty University is pleased to offer the B.M. in Music and World Cultures for the purpose of equipping musicians in various global and ethnic settings. Over the last 20 years, studies in world music and ethnomusicology have become a growing part of the education process in many college and university music programs. Our goal is to prepare students in: ethnic music making; bi-cultural teacher/performance; world music pedagogy; and, continued graduate studies in ethnomusicology.
