The Department of Vocal Music recognizes the importance of a comprehensive education in music and offers programs relevant to a wide range of musical contexts. The department administers five baccalaureate degree programs designed to prepare the student for church music ministry, teaching of choral and general music in public or private schools, vocal performance, private instruction, music business, and further studies at the graduate level.

Each discipline includes the general education core and is supported by an appropriate array of courses through private studio and class instruction that encourages creativity, performance and scholarship. Choral ensembles, opera workshop and musical theater classes provide educational opportunities for vocal performance integrating experiences in diverse styles.

The vocal faculty believes, teaches, and demonstrates that integrity and artistry in vocal performance bring glory to our Creator, whether in art song, opera, folk ballad or contemporary Christian song.
