Music Programs

The Department of Music exists to develop musicians who are equipped to advance the cause of Christ through music ministry. It endeavors to prepare students for music ministry, including leadership, performance, and teaching in churches and parachurch agencies.

The Department of Music offers two degree programs:

Bachelor of Arts in Music–Music Ministry

When you earn your Bachelor of Arts in Music—Music Ministry from Moody Bible Institute, you will receive training in both music and Bible that you can use anywhere you go.

Your degree will prepare you for a variety of music-focused career options such as teaching, performing, or leading worship in a church or ministry—wherever God calls!

Changing Programs after Admission

Both programs are designed to allow students to change programs in the first year with a minimum of scheduling difficulties. Student progress is carefully monitored. At the end of the second semester of applied instruction for the BA, students must pass a checkpoint jury exam; departmental counsel is utilized should a change of program be recommended or required.

 

Transfer Credit

Moody Bible Institute’s policy for transfer credit is listed in the Course Catalog. The Department of Music provides a supplemental evaluation in order to transfer credit for music theory and applied music.
